Children’s Classic

Saya bukan seorang yang keranjingan baca sejak kecil, malah bisa dikatakan bahwa saya telat mengenal keasikan membaca. Bulan lalu, akhir tahun 2013, saya membaca serial Inkworld dan bertemu Meggie. Lalu keinginan untuk tahu tokoh-tokoh dalam penggalan quote yang digunakan Cornelia Funke untuk membuka bab baru membuncah. Saya tak kenal Peter Pan, Alice, Tom Sawyer, Huck Fin, etc. Tidak pula saya tahun Le Petit Prince atau Little Women. Maka saya menggagas personal reading challenge ini.

I hope to break this list:

  1. Grimm’ Fairy Tales – Jacob & Wilhelm Grimm (1823)
  2. Oliver Twist – Charles Dickens (1838)
  3. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – Lewis Carroll (1865)

  5. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer – Mark Twain (1876)

  7. Treasure Island – Robert Louis Stevenson (1883)
  8. Adventures of Huckleberry Finn – Mark Twain (1884)
  9. The Jungle Book – Rudyard Kipling (1894)
  10. Five Children And It – E. Nesbit (1902)

  13. A Little Princess – Frances Hodgson Burnett (1905)
  14. The Railway Children – E. Nesbit (1906)
