Hey, wow. I'm pretty sure the only one of those I've read is Charlotte's Web. And I'm pretty sure I didn't actually read it--my parents read it to us as a bedtime story when I was a kid.

I need to use my library card more often and lay off the novels.

Never lay off the novels! This is mostly "high school canon" stuff, anyway...

It is fun! Well, in a gazing-long-into-the-abyss kind of way. I need to reread that thing.
