@betatesthighlander1: a basm (romanian word). it's kind of like a folklore story. it's for kids with, most of the time, the littlest of 3 brothers had to succeed where his older brothers have failed. in this, protect the tree with golden apples from 'zmei'(romanian word also, fun fact this is also our word for kite), sort of humans-ish beings with claws, wings, green, super strong. in most the reward is the hand of the princess of the kingdom it takes place in. they are mandatory reads in 3-4 grade, they teach morality, not the uptight kind, but be good, work smart, not hard, intelligent, sly characters. we have many books with such stories. very popular reads when you're young. title translation (best i could, some words dont translate): littlest the mighty and the golden apples.

@vortex13: You read Redwall when you were six? I didn't until I was 14.

I'm currently trying to hunt down all of the books.

I was a big reader when I was young. I still am really. The thing is I could barely hear until I was seven years old and had tubes put into my ears. If I remember correctly I was labeled as around 80% deaf before I got the tubes put in. Or however the hell they say that medically lol, so yeah reading was a hell of a lot easier for me then watching T.V. since I would end up having to turn it way up lol.

I am too. It probably says a lot about me that LeVar Burton is one of my heroes.

I really liked the Polar Express, How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight?, The Rainbow Fish, A Bad Case of Stripes, Where the Wild Things Are, Magic Treehouse books.

I also loved this book about African art, I can't remember the name of it, but it was really trippy.

@betatesthighlander1: Seeing as they're very English and very old, I suppose you'd have no clue as to what they were. It was a book series written by Enid Blyton between the 40s and 60s that I can certifiably say inspired Scooby Doo and the Mystery Gang amongst others. They were stories about four children (who were all cousins or siblings) and their dog who solved mysteries in their local town or wherever they found themselves. They explored places too.

They made a comeback a couple of years ago but with the originals all grown up and with their own kids in a much more modern setting. Their kids and another dog then become the famous five and I think crossover with Scooby Doo at some point; I don't quite remember. They had a cartoon and book series. It's good in it's own right but nothing compared to the originals

It was pretty different. The book was mainly just used as an outline and then they added a bunch of stuff to make it long enough to be a movie. I also just really don't like that motion-capture animation style. I'm sure that if I didn't have a prior attachment to the book, I would probably like it.

You should! You could probably finish it in about ten minutes. My librarian read it to my class when I was in first grade, and it was a magical experience.

And yes, the art is brilliant.
