What was your favorite book as a kid?
Advertisements [?]
Mine is Good Morning Miss Dove by Frances Priven. It is about a very cool school teacher who loved being challenged .

The kids dared her to eat an ant , and she (of course) ate one . They asked her what it tasted like and she replied "vinegar."

I checked out Amazon for a used copy and found out that a 1954 copy is very costly --dammit
