I'm also a fan of the shopping mall, especially when I was younger, so the idea of living in one sounds fun. Especially learning the secrets of what happens when it's closed.What book did you read? Secrets of the Shopping Mall
Your book, like mine, had a main character who loved to read. Robin, in my book, didn't develop telekinesis though.What book did you read? Still re-reading, but "Matilda" by Roald Dahl.
That story and illustrations reminds me of one of the short stories we read several months back. Maybe the one with the cat and mice that could sew? Probably having been written during the same timeframe.The book is King of the Golden River by John Ruskin
Your book was written exactly 100 years after V verna davies book. Nothing in common, just something I noticed as I read both your posts.

My first seIection was "Fun on ChiIdren's Street," by Maude Lindsay
Oh, nice. A book you read to your children. I wondered if anyone would choose a book like that. Really bright and colourful illustrations.What book did you read? Cajun Night Before Christmas
Oh, that brought back memories for me. Not that particular book, but the "Golden Book of" title, as I still have some of those books from my childhood. Those poems sound like they'd be fun to read and memorize. And the illustrations are lovely.What book did you read? "The Golden Book of Poetry."
