Stanek's imagination is wild. I mean the things he comes up with I'd never come up with and the way he writes scenes almost as if he painted them in with a brush. Vilmos's dreams are big reason I enjoyed the stories so much.
Not to bring this up again but what would be everyone's 'essential' list for RS. Obviously K+E and SoD but what about ML or PP or A+O? Or SJ? Can we come up with a list for teens and a list for adults? The reason I ask is it's for my lit 2 class.
