    1. I remember this one, but it wasn't one of my favourites. I do recall liking the pictures. But rereading it I love the text of the book - it is written with wonderful rhymes and alliterations. I couldn't help but read this one outloud to myself. An interesting note - it was written by Gregory Maguire of "Wicked" fame.


    2. This book was about a restaurant that he called quiet but it wasn't really. I didn't have a favourite character. The book was just ok, it wasn't like there was a unicorn in it or anything.
