The book is called “The Secret World of Og”, written by Pierre Berton. I loved that book, too!Originally Posted by averagejane
This is a wonderful thread! Some of my favourite books have been mentioned ... I love everything by Roald Dahl, E.B. White, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Louisa May Alcott, Beverly Cleary, Shel Silverstein (I love The Giving Tree too, Jewelsy )... I love the Frog and Toad books (and recently bought some to read to my nephew). I read every Nancy Drew mystery and loved Grimm's Fairytales and Hans Christian Andersen. I absolutely love the Chronicles of Narnia and recently read the whole series again (I think I enjoyed them even more as an adult!). I loved the Amelia Bedelia books, the Borrowers, and the Matthew Looney books by Jerome Beatty, Jr.
Another cute book is “Socks for Supper” by Jack Kent. I read “The Chocolate Touch” by Patrick Skene Catling to my younger brothers and sisters, which they loved. And Sesame Street’s “The Monster at the End of This Book” is a classic in our house - my nephew has me read it over and over and over and over again…. :rolleyes
I think my all-time favourite children’s book has to be the Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams. I love the beautiful story as much now as I did when I was a child.
