Old Friends on Paper

Books are like old friends; three of my favorite childhood books are The Trumpet of the Swan, Stuart Little (both by E.B. White) and Pipi Longstocking by Astrid Lingren. Books were my constant companions when I was small; they allow my imagination to flourish and they also provide a safe haven for me when I felt lonely. I no longer have copies of my childhood books but to recall these enjoyable characters is like remembering past friendships with old pals.
