  1. I loved Hope Was Here. Can't wait to read the others! I checked out Ottoline and the Yellow Cat this week and my kids read it about 3 times each. Great suggestion. Now I have one for you (that you've probably already read). The Spider and the Fly, illustrated by Tony DiTerlizzi. Beautiful poem, amazing pictures, and good moral!
