    It's a nice list but...

    Bram Stocker - Dracula
    Irving Washington - The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

    Those two looks kind of weird for kids to be reading... Well I have only seen the movies so I don't know what kind of languace it uses so I hope Im wrong

    There are quite a few books in there that I would still read as a 27 year old. The 'Junior' title is not justified.

    Also, if a book is a real classic, surely it would be accessible to all?

    just because you'd read it at 27 doesn't mean its not part of a junior collection.
    some do seem a bit older than 'junior' may suggest but plenty are ok for preteens.
    compare with the other collection and yes its junior.

    Yeah, right, but... moby dick? It's a masterpiece that few adults can grasp, let alone kids... anyway, the more great books the better (although I have an ebook reader and would never read on DS anymore)

    too bad The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery would probably never make its way into one of these titles... I still love my ragged paperback, and it'd be one of the things i'd keep in my person come rapture or some other disastrous whatnots. [​IMG]

    and i'd love to see Jonathan Livingston Seagull there as well.
