  1. I didn’t know Fried Green Tomatoes was a book, too!!!! Also, I could read Roald Dahl at any age, he is such a beautiful writer and interesting guy. 🙂 Wonderful list!

    1. Thanks, Malanie! Oh yes, that good movie stems from the page. I love them both. Also, I agree with you on Roald Dahl (The Witches is my fave!)
