FAVOURITE BOOKS FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD
I'm searching for all the books that made a difference to my childhood.

Having a young child is a great excuse to do all the great things that we did when WE were a child.

Don't know if this is the right forum for this...time will tell...very quickly I imagine.

Re: FAVOURITE BOOKS FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD
When I was real young I use to love all the Edgar Allen Poe short stories. Of course Mark Twain and Charles Dickens.

I don't think anything written after about 1940 or 50 is worth a crap.

Damn, I want to go read a book.

I've been searching for this book for a couple of months now and a bizzare reference to the Phantom gave me a clue...

In the Night Kitchen

I remember how amazing this book felt when I read it as a child...it was so 'out there' yet felt so real.

The book was banned in a number of countries for nudity?!?!

It is a simple story, but great. I don't have kids of my own yet - but when both my brother and sister's daughters were born, I bought this book for each of them.

Haha, I just found this online...a very special reading!

I don't remember reading much when I was a little kid. I was always out playing, fishing, pretending I was Thor.
From about 12 to 15 though, I read a lot of Hardy Boys, Ellery Queen and Agatha Christie novels.

Re: FAVOURITE BOOKS FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD
Politically Correct Bedtime Stories

The 3 Little Pigs

Once there were three little pigs who lived together in mutual respect and in harmony with their environment.

Using materials that were indigenous to the area, they each built a beautiful house. One pig built a house of straw, one a house of sticks, and one a house of dung, clay, and creeper vines shaped into bricks and baked in a small kiln. When they were finished, the pigs were satisfied with their work and settled back to live in peace and self-determination.

But their idyll was soon shattered. One day, along came a big, bad wolf with expansionist ideas. He saw the pigs and grew very hungry, in both a physical and an ideological sense. When the pigs saw the wolf, they ran into the house of straw. The wolf ran up to the house and banged on the door, shouting, "Little pigs, little pigs, let me in!"

The pigs shouted back, "Your gunboat tactics hold no fear for pigs defending their homes and culture."

But the wolf wasn't to be denied what he thought was his manifest destiny. So he huffed and puffed and blew down the house of straw. The frightened pigs ran to the house of sticks, with the wolf in hot pursuit. Where the house of straw had stood, other wolves bought up the land and started a banana plantation.

At the house of sticks, the wolf again banged on the door and shouted, "Little pigs, little pigs, let me in!"

The pigs shouted back, "Go to hell, you carnivorous, imperialistic oppressor!"

At this, the wolf chuckled condescendingly. He thought to himself: "They are so childlike in their ways. It will be a shame to see them go, but progress cannot be stopped."

So the wolf huffed and puffed and blew down the house of sticks. The pigs ran to the house of bricks, with the wolf close at their heels. Where the house of sticks had stood, other wolves built a time-share condo resort complex for vacationing wolves, with each unit a fiberglass reconstruction of the house of sticks, as well as native curio shops, snorkeling, and dolphin shows.

At the house of bricks, the wolf again banged on the door and shouted, "Little pigs, little pigs, let me in!"

This time in response, the pigs sang songs of solidarity and wrote letters of protest to the United Nations.

By now the wolf was getting angry at the pigs' refusal to see the situation from the carnivore's point of view. So he huffed and puffed, and huffed and puffed, then grabbed his chest and fell over dead from a massive heart attack brought on from eating too many fatty foods.

The three little pigs rejoiced that justice had triumphed and did a little dance around the corpse of the wolf. Their next step was to liberate their homeland. They gathered together a band of other pigs who had been forced off their lands. This new brigade of porcinistas attacked the resort complex with machine guns and rocket launchers and slaughtered the cruel wolf oppressors, sending a clear signal to the rest of the hemisphere not to meddle in their internal affairs. Then the pigs set up a model socialist democracy with free education, universal health care, and affordable housing for everyone.

Please note: The wolf in this story was a metaphorical construct. No actual wolves were harmed in the writing of the story.

2001: a space odyssey..

I know I was young when I first read it, 4th or 5th grade. It really helped me break free of the bonds of religion.

That and of course how each successive step in any significant evolution kills off the prior ones....

I know the "elite" like to think of themselves as neo humanity which is why they want to kill us all.
