So many choices, really.
First I could say "The Lorax," which definitely shaped my opinion on ecology.
But the real winner? JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH. The story by Roald Dahl was the first I read on my own and as wacky and insane as anything I had ever run across. Truth be told, it was read to me in the first grade by a teacher I couldn't name now if I had to, but I asked and was allowed to read the book every day when she was done with it, and I would read it as best I could during lunch and recess. The book stayed at school, of course, but I read it. And I loved it.
I think I might have to break down and buy a copy at some point.
Still haven't seen the movie version. I might well do that, too.

A childhood favorite
Posted by James A. Moore
I write fiction, a little of everything and a lot of horror. I've written novels, comic books, roleplaying game supplements, short stories, novellas and oodles of essays on whatever strikes my fancy. That might change depending on my mood and the publishing industry. Things are getting stranger and stranger in the wonderful world of publishing and that means I get to have fun sorting through the chaos (with all the other writer-types). I have a website. This isn't it. This is where you can likely expect me to talk about upcoming projects and occasionally expect a rant or two. Not too many rants. Those take a lot of energy. In addition to writing I work as a barista, because I still haven't decided to quit my day job. Opinions are always welcome.
