Growing up I had a few favorite books: Mr. Popper's Penguins, James and the Giant Peach, and Matilda all topped my list. i have fond memories of reading the dahl classics in the summertime and building a shadowbox in grade school featuring the little Popper penguins. I randomly told H about the shadowbox and a few months later he bought me a vintage copy of the book :)
Sooo naturally, I was a little sad to see that Mr. Poppers Penguins is going to be made into a movie...with Jim Carrey. I used to like Ace Ventura back in the day.. but after a string of flops not so much. ugh. I hope he doesn't ruin my penguins!
What childhood books do you hold close to your heart?
