The Church Mice
This morning I brought a box of books home from a library sale--mostly childrens' picture books and fairy tales. I was lucky enough to find three books we didn't have in Graham Oakley's Church Mice series, bringing our total to five out of ten. If you've never seen them, do read the interview with Arthur and Humphrey [DEC 2010: link has changed], and then keep your eyes open for these mostly out-of-print, very enjoyable picture books (and don't think that picture books are meant only for the youngest ones--these books are really packed with vocabulary and very sly jokes).
