That was tough! These works are all books that I would read again and again.
When I was 12, I wrote a fourty page book report of the entire lord of the rings trilogy. Do you think my teacher actually read the whole thing? Probably not.

Did you know.. the word dude is a term for an infected hair on an elephant's butt.

The average person has 100,000 hairs on their head. Homer Simpson has three.

I have read everything from half asleep in frog pyjamas, to some travel guides he's written in. I almost wish he was able to spit them out as fast as someone like King. Truly, my fav.
