Ten Books with My Favorite Color in the Title

I'm linking up with That Artsy Reader Girl for another Top Ten Tuesday.

This is a fun and different theme for today! My favorite color is blue, and these are all the books I've read with the color "blue" in the title.

1. 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
This is a YA novel about a girl who gets a series of envelopes after her aunt's death that lead her on an adventure through Europe.

2. Blue Bay Mystery by Gertrude Chandler Warner
This is the sixth book in the Boxcar Children series. (I read all of them as a kid.)

3. Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller
This is one of the first Christian books I read that spoke honestly about the complexities of life.

4. The Blue Parakeet by Scot McKnight
This is an honest look at the Bible and the many false paradigms we try to impose on it, like trying to make it an instructional manual or a puzzle to solve.

5. Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey
This is a classic picture book that my son so far has no interest in.

6. The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison
This is a classic work of literature about a black girl from an abusive family who thinks her problems would be solved if she could be white.

7. Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell
This is a work of historical fiction for children that I appreciated way more as an adult than the first time I read it in fourth grade.

8. Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle
This is a picture book that my son loves. At one point he and I both had it memorized.

9. The Mystery of the Blue Train by Agatha Christie
This is a middle-of-the-road Hercule Poirot mystery.

10. One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss
And finally, one of the most classic of all classic children's books!

What are some other great "blue" books?
