Nicholas Kristof book list

I'm amazed by the number of these books I haven't read - or even heard of in a couple of cases (Freddy the Pig).*

On the other hand, I had all the Anne of Green Gables books when I was a kid & never managed to get through even one of them, as I recall.

I've ordered The Dog Who Wouldn't Be & it may be time to finally read Lad A Dog. My neighbor has been telling me about that book for years. And Little Lord Fauntleroy sounds great!

Also: C. and his friends love the Cherub series.

And don't forget Work Hard. Be Nice.

I am insisting that C. read Work Hard. Be Nice. "I'm not interested in EDUCATION!" doesn't cut it with me as a reason not to read a book your education-obsessed mother thinks you ought to.

The Dog Who Wouldn't Be is a fun read. My favorite story about the dog is when he's sitting in the rumble seat of a car eating cherries and spitting out the pits. Oh, and he's wearing goggles. Could you imagine the look on the faces in other cars???
