This week we’re borrowing a page from Flavorwire’s 10 Celebrities’ Favorite Children’s Books. In particular Stan Lee’s contribution. The man of many-awesome-things was a fan of Leo Edward’s Poppy Ott series when he was a young boy.
“When I was young, I read everything I could lay my hands on. My mother used to say that if I didn’t have a book to read while I was eating, I’d read the label on the ketchup bottle. But I particularly liked the books by Leo Edwards, the Poppy Ott series. There was a tremendous amount of humor and adventure in these books. They bore titles that were ridiculously imaginative — Poppy Ott and the Stuttering Parrot, Poppy Ott and the Galloping Snail, Poppy Ott and the Freckled Goldfish, and Poppy Ott Hits the Trail.” [via Everything I Need to Know I Learned From a Children’s Book]
