Library List

In case you're interested, here's my latest tally from the library (no italics due to Blogger problems):

My Books
Comics and Sequential Art - Will Eisner
A Dictionary of King Arthur's Knights - Pamela Ryan
100 Best Books for Children - Anita Silvey
Universe on a T-Shirt: The Quest for the Theory of Everything - Dan Falk
Arthurian Myth and Legend - Mike Dixon-Kennedy
Celtic Myth and Legend - Mike Dixon-Kennedy (Virtually every Irish saint and many Catholic holidays come from Celtic gods. Despite what Dan Brown says, the Holy Grail started out as a Celtic artifact, predating Christianity by centuries.)
Chinese Dragons - Roy Bates
Doing Our Own Thing: The Degradation of Language and Music and Why We Should, Like, Care - John McWhorter

Doctor De Soto - William Steig (Picked by Anita Silvey as his best book; the story of a mouse dentist with a devilish fox as a patient)
Shrek - WS (Donkey shows up for one page and takes verbal abuse)
When Everybody Wore a Hat - WS (Steig's autobiography. Kids don't seem to like it so much but I can take only so much Dora and Maisy)
Doctor De Soto Goes to Africa - WS
The Amazing Bone - WS (Possibly his best book. The story of a little pig that finds a magical talking bone. Once again a fox is the villain who apologizes for kidnaping the heroine and preparing to eat her but just can't help himself.)
The King's Stilts - Dr. Seuss (I'd heard of this but never read it.)
Dora's Book of Manners (Again?)
Arthur's Nose - Marc Brown (First Arthur book)
Maisy Cleans Up - Lucy Cousins (Again? Again?)
