Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.


  1. Ah Rapunzel was a great story. I always wished I could grow my hair long enough to stretch down to the ground out of the window!

  5. What a fun list! These all look like they'd make great gifts. Press Here, Won Ton, and Awesome Man all look so appealing. I loved reading picture books with my daughter.

  6. thanks for stopping by! it looks like i am going to have to get a couple of these for my daughter! great picks!

  7. Nice list! The rock ABC one looks especially cool. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and happy reading!

  8. I always love your lists. You must be an awesome librarian. Can I sit in on one of your story reading days?

  9. Pop into my library anytime. Thank you for your kind thoughts, Anne!

  10. Excepting for 'Rapunzel' I've never heard of the other books you've mentioned. They all sound like fun!

  11. Tahnk you for the list, I can probably find these to read to "C" (he is six now). Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Great picture books! the Princess and the Pig looks really cute :D Great top 10!

  13. I didn't realize that Chabon had written a children's book. My husband loved The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, and is a huge comic book/superhero fan as well, so I'm going to look for this one for him :)

  14. The cover on the Princess and the Pig is my favorite.

  15. So glad you liked WON TON. A companion book will be published March 17, 2015! WON TON AND CHOPSTICK - A CAT AND DOG TALE TOLD IN HAIKU continues Won Ton cat's adventures with Boy. In this story, Won Ton's purrfect life is changed forever when the family adopts a (gasp!) dog. I hope you'll take a peek! Best fishes, Lee Wardlaw
