This one was the first stories that came to mind, i will never forget The Little Engine That Could, and the day i first heard this story, i remember it was the registration day for kindergarden. I remember feeling so overwhelmed by the story and the Little Engine's will power that I've never forgotten how he was able to do amazing things by putting his mind to it. I've really took that motto to heart, i think there for i am. That you can do anything if you think you can. Later i found it's suppose to be represent the American dream, but i never got that at all.
The Wump World is another one that really stuck with me. It's a story about a peaceful race of Wumps who live in beautiful planet only taking what they need. When one day aliens come to their planet looking for new resources because they used up all of their own resources. The aliens quickly move into the Wumps world forcing the Wumps underground because they are more technologically advanced, and destroy Wumps planet with pollution and waste, until the Wumps barley anything left. Finally the aliens use up all the resources on Wumps planet and leave it to find another host planet, leaving the Wumps with a destroyed home. Even tho the Wumps are sad about their broken planet there is hope at the end of the story because all is not lost when the sight of a single plant growing back after the destruction.
here's another page of the aliens moving into Wump world and taking it over.
It's just a really great story science fiction take on environmental issues. Really makes you think about how animals must think about how us humans treat the earth, and what we can do to not be like the aliens. GOOD STORY that's all i got to say i remember really loven the illustrations too!
The stone fox is a short novel i read when i was about 8, It's the best and saddest story ever. It's a great story about a 10 year old boy named willy and his dog searchlight. In the story the boy tries to save his grandfather's farm by entering in a dog sledding race to win a prize to help pay the taxes that his grandfather owes so that they can keep the farm. It is such an epic story and the boy goes through so much work to win this dog sled race, but the ending is so sad, i cried but it was a beautiful ending in it's own way. I DON'T EVEN WANT to spoil it for you.

I bought a bunch of James Stokoe's Orc Stain the other day at the comic shop, i couldn't resist with half off GOOD COMICS?! I MEAN IT was a steal. Anyway I got all thus far except for 2 which they didn't have so I'll have to pick it up somewhere else. BUT damn is it the best comic I've read in a very long TIME! MAN i love his art and colors, the story is very unique and keeps me turning the pages with anticipation. One of my favorite things about his writing is how Stokoe makes up all these jibberish words for his orc society. I can't wait to see where he takes it next.
I'm always cruisen through the library reading books, and i rented this in the library and it was also damn good very good kinda horror suspense. the story really captivated me and i really liked the surreal aspects of the story. GOOD READ!
Another good one, that i read earlier this year, but is was soo good i couldn't put it down once i started reading it. The story was so complex and Neil Gaiman did a great job introducing things early on in the story and then going back to those elements and wrapping it up with a clever ending.
This one i wasn't expecting i would like, but i couldn't help but love the characters and what happened to them. Fun take on the superhero story.
Ace is one of the most wanted con artist in the galaxy, wanted for money scams and data robbery. Ace has a gambling addiction and gambles away all her earnings only to getting her deeper in debt with the space mob. She travels across the universe from planet to colony raising money by doing tricks to get out of debt.
I've often thought about doing enter the void,
I created her a long time ago and never really did anything with her
she would be a good char for that cause she could crash land into that story line.
so many comics to read so little time...
