Santa, I'm...

...wishing upon a Christmas star...

1.  The Little Vampire by Angela Sommer-Bodenberg:
      I have seen parts of the movie and whatnot, so reading the book seems like
      something I just have to do.

2.  The Whisper Jar by Carole Lanham:
      A collection of secrets... I have been wanting to read these short stories for a long 

3.  The Dead Girls Detective Agency by Susy Cox: 
      A bunch of dead girls solving their own deaths? Count me in.

4.  The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore by William Joyce: 
      Flying books! This sounds like a dream coming true. 

5.  The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale: 
      This girl is talking to animals - she is a princess - travelling the land - fighting for her 
      right - clearly this must be a good read!?

6.  The Eyre Affair: A Thursday Next Novel by Jasper Fforde: 
      Someone is kidnapping characters from books, and Thursday sets out to solve the
      mystery. This is the first book about her.

7.  The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster: 
      Quite a few people seems to think that this is their favourite book from their 
      childhood - which intrigues me. I have also heard that the language is very good, 
      and that Juster is playing on words and meanings in this book.

8.  A Light In The Attic by Shel Silverstein: 
      A poetry collection with characters that have funny names. Sounds like a fun read.

9.  Time Cat: The Remarkable Journeys of Jason and Gareth by Lloyd Alexander: 
      Cats AND timetravel! Quite interesting.

10. The Case of the Missing Servant: from the Files of Vish Puri, Most Private Investigator by Tarquin Hall:
       The blurb tells me that this is India's answer to Mma Ramotswe from The No.1 Ladies' 
       Detective Agency. Need I say more?

Now, which ten books do you hope Santa brings this Christmas?
