I’ll be way behind here with so many holidays each day, so for now I’ll just give a quick hooray for Laura Ingalls Wilder! First book series for me when I could read on my own was her Little House books. I have them still, plus one or two others about her, and my oldest son likes the books a lot and has his own set. I loooved the show so much as a kid!
Also have to say: Dahl’s Chickens! I laughed so hard when I first encountered that Dickens reference in The BFG. Dahl was brilliant! 😀
