Here I go again, as the Saturday Whore, veering off the exact nature of the topic at hand. Hey, that's how I roll, folks!
The classic books of my youthful reading became conflated in my head with the movies. So when I say Heidi, I see Shirley Temple. The Swiss Family Robinson is forever the Disney family to me, with John Mills, Dorothy McGuire, James MacArthur as Fritz (had a bigtime crush on him for a time), a tiger in a pit and a girl riding a zebra (I was so jealous).
The Dinotopia series by James Gurney was also a hit at our house...
Happy holidays to one and all!
