My Favourite Books - The Letter V

Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray - Please don't let the 2004 movie version throw you off.  (I prefer the 1987 movie version, which is very hard to find).  This really is a masterpiece.

The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams - I grew up with the version that was illustrated by Michael Hague.  I still think the last picture of the fairy looks like I did when I was a little girl.  (Except I had short hair.)  This is a sweet story of a well loved toy and what it takes for a toy to be real.

The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle by Hugh Lofting - Wonderful tales of Doctor Dolittle's adventures.  What exactly do you do when you can talk to animals?
