Since I'm really original and unusual, I got "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupery.  ???

I have never heard of that book.

Sometimes I wonder if you grew up in caves ;D
Didn't you have to read it at school?

Yay! I'm the first!
You Got: "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr. Suess
You are a character who likes to venture off the beaten path, and nothing would satisfy you more than bringing along a friend. You are persistent and encouraging, because you know some of your favorite things may seem odd to a casual observer. “Go for it!” or “Why not?” are probably your go-to responses to anyone wary of trying something new and different. Most importantly, you are a great friend who sticks around even if your loved ones get a bit grumpy. Just give them your delicious, oddly colored food and the grouch will switch into a happy camper along with you!
Well, I can't cook all that well, but especially not weird things. And I can encourage people to do crazy and new things, but it's harder for myself to do the same.
Still cool though!

It must be a 'latin countries in Europe' thing, the knowledge of this book: France, Portugal, Spain, maybe Italy...

I've just asked my hungarian colleague - she says it's a basic book like Grimm's tales.
I assume that then it's popular in "non-anglo-saxon" countries only :)

You Got: "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak

You are a colorful character who likes to bend the rules just a bit. You definitely love to travel and experience all the wonderful things the natural world has to offer. You are mischievous but also fun-loving. You would take good care of a wild and energetic kitten or a basket of teething puppies. While you love adventure and home is not always where you want to be, nothing makes you happier than being in a room filled with your loved ones.

*whew*

I got the Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.

Quote
You are filled with love and generosity. You have a deep understanding of human nature and are well aware of people?s shortcomings. But instead of berating the often selfish aspect of those around you, you revel in the joy of giving. Whether or not your good deeds are reciprocated, seeing your loved ones happy is a good enough return. People admire you for your wisdom and ability to respect your surroundings and live in the moment, rather than wallowing in the sad and cynical facts of life.

Sounds good, but I don't know the book.  ;D Would've thought I get Where the Wild Things are. :)

You Got: "Goodnight Moon" by Margaret Wise Brown

You are a quirky, old-soul who just about everyone loves. You are full of dreamy and creative ideas and your soothing demeanor is perfect for calming an anxious friend, especially before bed! While you are generally calm, cool, and collected, there is no denying that you are a bit out of the ordinary—in the best possible way. You see opportunity and significance in seemingly mundane things, perhaps a red balloon, which will make you stand out in school, work, and at home.


Neat.

We should form a club called, "People who aren't little Princes." We would have the more fun out of the two.
