    Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll Illustrated by J. Otto Seibold, Lisbeth Zwerger Print | Share One summer day, young Alice is sitting on the riverbank with her sister when a big white rabbit runs past. "Oh dear! Oh dear!

  • Peter Rabbit

    by Beatrix Potter Year Published: Average
    For those who may not remember, Peter sneaks into Mr. McGregor's garden to feast on fresh vegetables, ignoring the advice of his mother and the good example set by his siblings, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail. Nearly caught by the rake-wielding gardener, Peter makes a narrow escape with the help of a watering can and some friendly sparrows, but he loses his new jacket and shoes in the process. Exhausted from his adventure, Peter gets a dose of medicinal chamomile tea and is put to bed early, while Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-tail feast on bread, milk, and blackberries for supper

  • The World According to Humphrey

    by Betty Birney Year Published: Average
    You can learn a lot about life by observing another species. That's what Humphrey was told when he was first brought to Room 26. And boy is it true! There are always adventures in the classroom and each weekend he gets to sleep over with different students. Humphrey learns to read, write, shoot rubber bands (only in self-defense, of course), turn off TVs, teach English as a second language, and more. With a lock-that-doesn't-lock and an adventurous spirit, what more could a mischievous hamster want?

  • If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

    by Laura Numeroff Year Published: Easy Reading
    When a generous boy shares a cookie with a hungry mouse, it is the beginning of a chain of events that keeps the boy busy all day long, and might keep him busy for days to come. If you give a mouse a cookie, after all, he's bound to ask for a glass of milk, for which he'll certainly need a straw, not to mention a napkin, and a mirror to check for a milk mustache, which will only lead to him noticing that he needs a haircut. This imaginary mouse has the kind of needs a child might have; he needs a nap with a soft pillow, and he needs his drawing hung up on the refrigerator. By the end of a day with such a mouse, a boy-hero might have an idea what it's like to be a Mommy!
