“The Very Best Book”

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

Today’s “Very Best Book” comes to us from none other than Wil Wheaton, best known for his portrayal of Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation.  Will is such a sweet smart guy, and a reader.  He says:

When I was in second grade, I loved Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. It was just absurd and wonderful. I especially loved the ending, because I wasn’t entirely sure if grandpa made the whole thing up, or if Chewandswallow was a real place.

When I got a little older, I read and re-read Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing too many times to count. Finally, there was a book that treated me like the mature, grown-up 4th grader I knew I was.

What’s *your* favorite book from childhood?
