Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, John Tenniel Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, "and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?"  So she was considering, in her own mind whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.

Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor The day Shiloh come, we're having us a big Sunday dinner.  Dara Lynn's dipping bread in her glass of cold tea, the way she likes, and Becky pushes her beans over the edge of her plate in her rush to get 'em down.  Ma gives us her scolding look.  We live high up in the hills above Friendly, but hardly anybody knows where that is.  Friendly's near Sistersville, which is halfway between Wheeling and Parkersburg.  Used to be, my daddy told me, Sistersville was once of the best places you could live in the whole state.
