I loved, loved, LOVED Angie Smith's For Such A Time As This. I really did. What did I love about it? I loved the balance of text and illustration. The stories felt full, or, I suppose a better word might be rich. Some story books are so concise that ...more

Louisa May Alcott
“That is a good book it seems to me, which is opened with expectation and closed with profit.”
Louisa May Alcott

Victor Hugo
“A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is visible labor and there is invisible labor.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Victor Hugo
“The power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved in. Few people dare now to say that two beings have fallen in love because they have looked at each other. Yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Louisa May Alcott
“Some stories are so familiar its like going home.”
Louisa May Alcott

Victor Hugo
“Life's great happiness is to be convinced we are loved.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
