How is it possible that in 20 years, this book has not been made into a movie? If you liked The False Prince, read this because it's better.

Finding Winnie by Lindsay Mattick
"What is it with bears and WWI? Aw, heck. Let’s expand that question a tad. What is it with adorable animals and WWI? Seems these days no matter where you turn you find a new book commemorating a noble creature’s splendor and sacrifice on the battl..." Read more of this review »
Frances Dean Who Loved to Dance and Dance by Birgitta Sif
"The pencil illustrations and muted color palette of this book is thoroughly delightful. Every spread is a piece of art. However, the story seemed to be lacking one or two lines to reall wrap the story together. The story starts and ends with "Fran..." Read more of this review »
Frances Dean Who Loved to Dance and Dance by Birgitta Sif
"Today seems to be the day for picture books that deal with empowerment in some way. In this picture book Frances Bean, who loves nothing more than to dance, faces her fears and shares that love with others. Afraid of what others might say, at firs..." Read more of this review »

I loved the premise and the less common fairy tale/ nursery rhyme characters featured, but I lost steam along the way.

Ursula K. Le Guin
“Ged stood sick and haggard. He said at last, “Better I had died.” “Who are you to judge that, you for whom Nemmerle gave his life?—You are safe here. You will live here, and go on with your training. They tell me you were clever. Go on and do your work. Do it well. It is all you can do.”
Ursula K. Le Guin, A Wizard of Earthsea

Claire Svendsen
“You’re horse is nice too,” Amber said softly.”
Claire Svendsen, Secret Rider

Frank Schaeffer
“It seems to me that a spiritual sensibility is built into human nature. Formal religion may or may not disappear but art, love and a desire to find beauty will remain.”
Frank Schaeffer, Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God: How to give love, create beauty and find peace

Charlotte Brontë
“I have now been married ten years. I know what it is to live entirely for and with what I love best on earth. I hold myself supremely blest - blest beyond what language can express; because I am my husband's life as fully as he is mine. No woman was ever nearer to her mate than I am: ever more absolutely bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. I know no weariness of my Edward's society: he knows none of mine, any more than we each do the pulsation of the heart that beats in our separate bosoms; consequently, we are ever together. To be together is for us to be at once free as in solitude, as gay as in company. We talk, I believe, all day long: to talk to each other is but more animated and an audible thinking. All my confidence is bestowed on him, all his confidence is devoted to me; we are precisely suited in character - perfect concord is the result.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Michael Lewis
“It was like a broken slot machine in the casino that pays off every time. It would keep paying off until someone said something about it; but no one who played the slot machine had any interest in pointing out that it was broken.”
Michael Lewis, Flash Boys
