Ooh! I almost want to join just to steal your list, but I'm saying no, lol. You have some of my favorite childhood books on there. Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIHM is incredible and the movie is just as good. I completely forgot about Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing!! That one was so good...I'll have to revisit that one. The Mouse and the Motorcycle was literally my favorite book for awhile when I was a kid. Your boys will love it :) And Peter Pan will always be a favorite. There's an edition that's illustrated by Charles Vess that I highly recommend. He's the guy that illustrated Neil Gaiman's Stardust and his work is wonderful. Reminds me of old time fairy tale illustrations.
