We've been planning an expansion of our bookcase at Castle in the Air for a while, and this month seemed like the right time to bring in the books. Rainy days are perfect for curling up with some hot tea and a good story.

When choosing the books for our shelf, we thought back to the writers and artists that inspired and thrilled us as children, so we've got selections from the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, Lewis Carroll, Rudyard
Kipling, Charles Dickens, T.H. White, Nick Bantock, Lisbeth Zwerger, and many more. And of course my favorite, Miss Suzy by Miriam Young and Arnold Lobel. (110 five-star reviews on Amazon!) One very special book that I hadn't seen anywhere for many years was The Neverending Story by Michael Ende printed in red and greed ink. It's storytime!

Ahhhh! Miss Suzy...The Neverending Story.....such happy memories.....The idea of a cozy blanket, hot cup of tea and a great story sounds so good right now. Thank you for keeping imagination alive.

Oh, such wonderful books. I have Miss Suzy that I've had since I was a child and the first copy of The Neverending Story I read was written in red and green ink. Oh, this spot is truly enviable. Thanks for sharing!
