Bedtime Stories | Not Quite Classic…

Daily Prompt: What was your favorite book as a child? Did it influence the person you are now?

Childrens-Books

Disappointingly enough, I never actually had a favourite book as a child. I read condensed versions of classical titles such as ‘Call of the Wild’ and ‘Black Beauty’ (and numerous others), but alas they were not loved to the point that I would remember every critical point of the story. To that extent, they did not, as far as I can tell, have much effect on the person I am now.

Memories of cartoons (sadly, not books) that I feel may have impacted me as a child, however, include the original version of The Little Mermaid (the one where she turned into bubbles), The Little Prince and Grave of the Fireflies, which I watched when I was around five years old. If anything other than life were to influence the person I am now – that is, rather morbid, cynical and pessimistic, but still someone who enjoys well-written fiction and daydreaming – chances are it was one (or all) of these.
