mannequin's list

I'm afraid I'm quite late to the challenge but I'm here at last. I cannot help but browse the Childrens section of the library each visit. I've chosen five of my childhood favorites and will post reviews appropriately. Thanks for having me and I look forward to reading everyones reviews.

  1. Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans, 1939
  2. Eloise by Kay Thompson, 1955
  3. Bambi by Felix Salton, 1929
  4. Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren, 1950
  5. The Cricket in Times Square by George Seldon, 1960
I really could have gone with all Pippi Longstocking's (and gladly so!) but I figured I needed to mix it up! Here's the link to my blog post : Fractured Toy


  1. I remember reading Pippi Longstocking - enjoy ;0)

  2. Great list. Pippi was also a great favorite of my daughters - both book and movie. I also loved the other girls - Madeline and Eloise. I look forward to your reviews.
