    "Charlotte's web is probably the top two for me, the other being Animal Farm. I learned a lot of life lessons from this one as a child. It's heart felt, innocent, but also has an edge to it."

    #5Alice's Adventures In Wonderland

    Alice's Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll is a book where wordplay, parody, and logical and philosophical puzzles are everywhere. For all the surface playfulness, there is meaning in every page.

    "I just found out the "Alice" is actually based on a real girl. And that Carroll has a weird infatuation with her. It kind of creeps me out a bit, but then again this book has always creeped me out a bit too. It's obviously an awesome story and there's so many allegories hidden in its hard to track them all down."

    "The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials) is good, but not one of the best books that feature anthropomorphic animals. The story is dull and the characters are boring. It does have some good parts that really capture your interest."

    "I read this book in junior high and it really got me interested in reading. More specifically, this really got me into reading books featuring anthropomorphic animals. I would put this in my top three in this category. However, this book truly stands out the most due to the wacky antiques of the characters, and you especially get a really good feel for the traits of each animal in the personalities of each character.

    "The Capture is a fantastic ride. While not the best in the series, I enjoyed this one quite a bit. I love the suspense and imagination in Lasky's writing. She pulls you deep into the world of fantasy and never really lets up. The environments come to life and you find yourself attaching deeply to the characters..\"
