    It figures that I’d know the Children’s answer – it’s The Little Prince.

    The Little Prince is the only one I know.

    Okay, on the one hand, I only knew two of these (Little Prince and Winesburg) and that’s not great. But on the OTHER hand, it took me a really long time to fish “Winesburg” out of my memory because I don’t care about American literature, and I feel rather proud of myself for managing to remember it.

    I’m late to the party here, but I just wanted to throw out there that I grew up in the next town over from “Winesburg” Ohio (it’s actually Clyde). There was a neat restaurant in town called The Winesburg Inn. I remember it as being huge, large rooms with high ceilings and things (including a really old airplane) hanging way up high.

      I had no idea I’d ever met anyone who had actually been to Winesburg, Ohio!

    I like the weather report.
