How could I have forgotten Tom's Midnight Garden!? The Wizard of Earthsea?! The Lovely Summer??!! Or Patricia McLachlan's Baby? And The Rabbit's Umbrella!!??
And Käthe pointed out that Eva, for example, is really a YA book...so I think I'll try again. I think I'll see if I can't come up with my ten favorite picture books, children's books and YA books. (Though there's always some blurring in those last two categories.) I will (possibly) put a little more thought into the selections this time, instead of just sitting here at my desk and musing a bit.
I have been knitting...and there will be pictures later to prove it. We had snow overnight and work started two hours late, so I took some pictures of Palindrome (groan - still not finished) and a hat I'm working on (which may explain, in part, why Palindrome isn't yet finished) and Gizmo. But I didn't get them uploaded before we left.
Usually, when work opens two hours late, I take it as a sign from God to stay home. Wish I'd done so this time.
