Godson’s books

My godson’s birthday
Every year, I give him a classic book, and write a couple of pages about what happened in his life, in my life, and in the world in general that year.  I chose the sketchbook from Washington Irving remembering my travels through the catskills along Rip van Winkle’s path with his dog Wolf.  The books so far:
age 13 The Complete works of William Shakespeare
age 12 The Metamorphosis, and Frankenstein
age 11
age 10 Washington Irving  Rip van Winkle, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
age 9 Dante The Inferno
age 8   The Bible
age 7   Thoreau  Walden and Civil Disobedience
age 6 Victor Hugo  The Hunchback of Notre Dame
age 5 Dickens Great Expectations
age 4 Voltaire  Candide
age 3 Jonathan Swift Gulliver’s Travels
age 2   Jack London  The Call of the Wild
age 1 Homer The Odyssey and The Iliad
