...what is it and why?

Mine is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I think it is imaginative and beautiful. I love the language, the characters and the way the story builds to its climax. It has stayed with me long after I first read it and only improved with subsequent readings.

There are others but that is the main one.

Any Dr Suess books. Even as an adult I love reading them to my DNeice (who adores them too). What it must be like to have an imagination like that.

Adored beloved and reading Dr Seuss aloud is a real treat.

There's a lovely book called Love that Dog which is all in poem form but tells a story about a boy and his dog. It's a very clever thing and another one I wish I'd written.
