Little Women- “I hate to think I've got to grow up, and be Miss March, and wear long gowns, and look as prim as a China-aster! It's bad enough to be a girl, anyway, when I like boy's games and work and manners!”

The Emperor's New Suit- ”Why, but he hasn't got anything on!” they all shouted at last. And the emperor winced, for he felt they were right. But he thought to himself: “I must go through with the procession now.” And he drew himself up more proudly than ever, while the chamberlains walked behind him, bearing the train that wasn't there.

The Wonderful World of Oz-
“Don't you dare to bite Toto! You ought to be ashamed of yourself, a big beast like you, to bite a poor little dog!”
“I didn't bite him,” said the Lion, as he rubbed his nose with his paw where Dorothy had hit it.
“No, but you tried to,” she retorted, “You are nothing but a big coward.”
”I know it,” said the Lion, hanging his head in shame; “I've always known it. But how can I help it!”

Alice in Wonderland-
“Have some wine,“ the March Hare said in an encouraging tone.
Alice looked all round the table, but there was nothing on it but tea. “I don't see any wine,” she remarked.
“There isn't any,” siad the March Hare.
“Then it wasn't very civil of you offer it,” said Alice angrily.
“It wasn't very civil of you to sit down without being invited,” said the March Hare.
”I didn't know it was your table,” said Alice; “it's laid for a great many more than three.”

Kenneth Grahame
b. 3-8-1859; Edinburgh, Scotland
d. 7-6-1932; Pangbourne, Berkshire, England

Kenneth Grahame, unable to afford Oxford, worked at the Bank of England from 1879 till retirement in 1908.

While a young man in his 20s, Grahame began publishing short stories in periodicals; his masterpiece The Wind in the Willows (1908) features “four anthropomorphised animal characters in a pastoral version of England”.

The Wind in the Willows-
They reached the carriage-drive of Toad Hall to find, as the Badger had anticipated, a shiny new motor-car, of great size, painted in a bright red (Toad's favourite colour), standing in front of the house. As they neared the door it was flung open, and Mr. Toad, arrayed in goggles, cap, gaiters, and enormous overcoat, came swaggering down the steps, drawing on his gauntleted gloves.

Beatrix Potter
b. 7-28-1866; London, England
d. 12-22-1943; Near Sawrey, Cumbria

Author and illustrator Beatrix Potter, who was also a mycologist and conservationist, is best known for children's books featuring anthropomorphic characters such as in The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit-
But Peter, who was very naughty, ran straight to Mr. McGregor's garden, and squeezed under the gate! First he ate some lettuces and some French beans; and then he ate some radishes; and then, feeling rather sick, he went to look for some parsley.
