Two must-reads.

Dear bloggers,
I have been asked to contribute two books to a list of must-reads. It was a bit of a challenge (well, one of them) and I found myself very puzzled as to knowing what I did and didn't like. I finally came to a conclusion.

9. Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.
If you want to understand being Australian, you need to understand this book. Snugglepot and Cuddlepie are two gum nut babies who flee from their home to have an adventure. They spend most of the book scantily clad in nothing but a leaf, dodging the many obstacles of Australian bush life. I love this book so much, I have a little badge I wear on my school tie of them on a leaf. I am not sure as to whether the dress code requires personal badges on the school tie to be clothed, but I'm sure I will find out soon.

Well, this one is much of a surprise. I have strongly expressed my feelings towards this book in my previous posts and I figured you would have guessed that I like it. There is not much I can say, except that you absolutely have to read it because Lewis Carroll changed literature as we know it. I mean, forget about Shakespeare, read ALICE!



  1. Awh, what a lovely note! I would love to open up an old book to see that written there.

  2. Alice in Wonderland was such a charming book. It sparked my imagination when I first read it all those years ago :)

  3. I love Alice. A friend of mine is posting a poem a day on facebook in honor of National Poetry Month and asked others to do the same. I told her the only poem I really know is Jabberwocky.
