Well, I'll do two books (and six people) since I was tagged twice:
"Father ought to see these trees," she murmured; "they are almost as lovely as his own rainbows."From The Road to Oz, L. Frank Baum.
Then she gave a start of terror, for beneath the trees came stalking two great beasts, either one big enough to crush the little Daughter of the Rainbow with one blow of his paws, or eat her up with one snap of his enormous jaws. One was a tawny lion, as tall as a horse, nearly; the other a striped tiger almost the same size.
But Emma had flounced into the bathroom and was crossly brushing her teeth and didn't hear Hattie's cry of wonder.From "The Spider in the Bath," The Last Slice of Rainbow, Joan Aiken.
Down on the terrace, instead of a hundred spiders, there were a hundred handsome young men, all bowing and smiling. One of them had a crown on his head and a knapsack on his back; the rest carried plastic bags of diamonds.
So... I tag... edda, foresthouse, sexion8, sorchar, bubosquared, lyrainverse.
