Yes... definitely read Watership Down as soon as possible. Any top ten animal book list without it (and Wind in the Willows) is a shame, especially considering Eragon made the list.

This is a different Lynne commenting...anyway, I read "Wesley the Owl" and absolutely loved it (it's a newer book), I'm waiting on the library list for "A Lion Named Christian" and I also want to get "The Everyday Coyote" - heard these were both amazing.

Emily: I've really got to read that Edgar book soon!

Wendy: Fun topic this week! :)



Terrific post, Suey :) I also loved Black Beauty.....

Terrific post, Suey :) I also loved Black Beauty...and of course Charlotte's Web...and Ole' Yeller made me cry :) Thanks for sharing the photos of your animals!

2009-04-27T07:06:00.000-06:00

OH I loved Island of the Blue Dolphins and Where the Red Fern Grows! I also really liked Summer of the Monkeys. And more recently, I thought that The Story of Edgar Sawtelle was really great.

Thanks for all the comments everyone!

Maree: We've always thought our cat was pretty cute too!

Lynne: I didn't think I would enjoy Seabiscuit as much as I did either. It was so good!

Bkclubcare: We are lousy pet namers! Our cat has always just been Kitty. Our bird came with the name of Roy, which we thought was lame, so we changed it to Royal, but we just call him... you guessed it... Birdie!!

Kristen: Thanks! Happy WG to you too!

Frances: Oh, I love Island of the Blue Dolphins!

Raidergirl:Oh, yes. Tale of Desperaux and Because of Winn- Dixie are both wonderful too.

Kailana: I know what you are saying about the list making. And I know I'll always forget something! But it's fun anyway!

Pussreboots: Yes, we've always said that our cat adopted us.

Molly: The cat and bird pretty much just ignore each other. But we are careful that they aren't both loose at the same time!

Megan: Ah, Julie of the Wolves! Yes, I would have added that one had I still had room. I had The Yearling on there, but then it got bumped.

Margot: I really should re-read Charlotte's Web too.

Shannon: My young daughter just read Socks awhile back and totally loved it too. Brought back good memories.

Socks by Beverly Cleary is a good one. It has been long time since I read one of her books. Shoot I should have thought dragons. lol

Great tale about your pets. Your list is also great. I just read Charlotte's Web this week and it brought back great memories. Other books on your list also bring back memories.

Where the Red Fern Grows

...and others from your list. I don't think I could stop at ten.
Thanks for the fun memories!

Love the top 10 list!!

So how do the cat and the bird get along?!

It's funny how cats will just pick their homes. Happy WG.

2009-04-26T10:19:00.000-06:00

I hate lists like this (for me) simply because I spend time thinking, make the list, and then by the end of the day I can probably think of ten more books that should've made the list! lol Then, I start second-guessing myself.

When I was a kid I would go through animal phases, but none of the books I read back then have really stuck with me!

2009-04-26T07:40:00.000-06:00

Follow My Leader!?! I love that book. I bought it from the book order when I was a kid, and I saved it, and my son read it a few years ago and loved it too. Last week, my dad brought my son some firecrackers, and we mentioned about the book.
Excellent choice!

I love Owls in the Family by Farley Mowatt, a somewhat autobiographical account of growing up on the prairies in the 1940s.
Also, Kate diCamillo's Tale of Despereaux and Because of Winn-Dixie are excellent books about animals.
(I guess I've started my own little list of animal books here, haven't I?)

2009-04-26T06:41:00.000-06:00

That is a great list! I had almost forgotten how much I loved Island of the Blue Dolphins as a kid until I saw it here.



Great book choices - Happy Geeks Week

Great book choices - Happy Geeks Week

2009-04-26T04:16:00.000-06:00

I agree with Lynne, Seabiscuit is a wonderful read! Great idea for the list concept.
What are your animal and bird's names?

2009-04-26T04:09:00.000-06:00

We have always had pets - dogs, cats, and both at the same time. Right now we have 2 dogs, but when the day comes that they're no longer with us, no more pets.

I loved SEABISCUIT. I never thought I'd enjoy a book like that, but I really did.

2009-04-26T02:46:00.000-06:00

I'm not really big on animal books, but your cat is gorgeous. Like the cockatiel too. :)
