Genre: Children's book, comedy

"'My work here is done. And I'm a wanderer,' said Mr Stink. 'It's time for me to wander on.' 
'But we want you to be safe and warm here with us,' said Chloe. Tears were rolling down her cheeks now. Annabelle wiped away her sister's tears with her sleeve. 
'I am sorry, Miss Chloe. I have to go. No tears please. No fuss. Farewell to you all and thank you for your kindness.' Mr Stink put down his cup and saucer, and headed for the door. 'Come on, Duchess,' he said. 'It's time to go.'"

Mr Stink was a book I was reading because of work. Due to being off work I have been able to read it quickly and really did enjoy it. It's a few years since I've read a children's book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was the last children's book I read in 2011.

To Kill a Mockingbird...Once a classic always a classic!

Title: To Kill a Mockingbird
Author: Harper Lee
ISBN: 978-0-09-954948-2
Rating: 9/10
Genre: Drama

"I could not possibly hope possibly hope to be a lady if I wore breeches: when I said I could do nothing in a dress, she said I wasn't supposed to be doing things that required pants. Aunt Alexandra's vision of my deportment involved playing with small stoves, tea sets, and wearing the Add-A-Pearl necklace she gave me when I was born; furthermore, I should be a ray of sunshine in my father's lonely life."

"I'd rather you shot at tin cans in the back yard, but I know you'll go after birds. Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird,"
