A nice list. We have some you might have expected (Grandpa Green and Me…Jane), some quirky titles that have a passionate following (I Want My Hat Back, Ice (discreet fist pump)), and a couple that flew under the radar (for me at least) (Migrant, A New Year’s Reunion). You have to like a list that sends you out hunting.
