The Duncton Chronicles by William Horwood [link] was a favorite of mine. Fairly lengthy, but interesting, and the series covers some important themes.

I'd never even heard of that series; I'll have to give it a look. It apparently isn't as popular in the US as it appears to have been in the UK.

It can be pretty graphically brutal at times and there is no shortage of good "people" suffering, which I think tends to turn some people off. There is also a strong allegorical religious/spiritual context that may not mesh with some people's views. But once you accept the initial positing of sentient "anthropomorphic" moles, it all plays out in a very natural way.

Hi,
My favourite is "James and the Giant Peach" by Roald Dahl.

I liked it so much that I bought "James and the Giant Peach: A play" adapted by Richard George. It's really cool with "Easy-to-make costumes"! :excited:
Unfortunately, none of my friends wants to take part in the play.

:no: What terrible, terrible friends! (;p)

Is there a theatrical club at your school? Maybe offer it to them.

yeah, terrible friends think that it's terribly embarrassing to dress up as insects, sing and dance in front of people.
We have manga club but no theatrical club. Sometimes there are competitions between classes but kids here enjoy watching shooting scenes on television. :shrug:
