What were your favorite books as a child? Do you have a favorite character or hero from one of those books? Is there one book you wish all children would read?

I have tattoos from children’s books all over my arms and torso. The biggest one is of Ferdinand the bull, which Elliott Smith also had, but his was a different page. What a good message that book has! Just be yourself and don’t gore anyone with your horns if you don’t feel like it.

Lena Dunham,
