  3. You are so creative! I LOVED the Baby-Sitters club, I used to try so hard to be like Claudia.

  4. Good choices. I was just recommending Calvin and Hobbes to one of the kids I babysit for who is into Garfield comics right now.

  5. Miss Nelson Is Missing! Little House on the Prairie!! The Monster at the End of This Book! YES!

    Sorry for all the exclamation points. Excellent choices. (!)

  7. Miss Nelson is Missing!! I loved that book. I think I've read it a million times, though not recently--which I should do something about.

  8. MANY WATERS! I LOVED THAT BOOK!!!!!!!!!!! And Sally J Freedman. I thought that was one of those books no one else had ever read!!

    Also re: your comment on my blog. knowing Claud's number is hardly my biggest feat. I can tell you the names and ages of basically every kid in Stoneybrook, which school they go to, if they aged in the series... I'm a walking encyclopaedia and I often wish eight-year-old me had been interested in, say, code or web design. Something that might have been profitable!.

  9. Oh, Madeleine L'Engle was one of my favorites. I loved sci-fi/fantasy books, like the My Teacher is an Alien series, or the Prydain Chronicles.

    But I remember devouring all the BSC and SVH books as soon as they came out, and I was a huge Beverly Cleary and Judy Blume fan.

    Such good books!

  15. Here's another vote for Many Waters - I'd forgotten that one, but I think it was the first book I ever read with Nephillim as a character class.

    And, sadly, I just found my old copy of The Monster at the End of This Book a few weeks ago. It had been completely destroyed by too much time in storage in the garage.

    :-(

  21. The Secret Garden is still one of my favorites; have to go back and read it every once in a while.

  22. The Mixed-up Files of Ms. Basil E. Finkwater! I totally forgot about that one. Aw.

  24. What a fantastic collage! Loved most of those, too--though the one that stands out for me is Many Waters. So glad you loved that book, too! I reread it ever so often. Those twins are just so freaking cool!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh, From The Mixed Up Files is just one of the best books ever. I re-read it a few years ago and it was still just as good.

  29. You have some great choices! I'd forgotten all about The Secret Garden, but yes, absolutely loved it growing up.

  30. I can't believe how many you have on here that I forgot about! Dang it. Now I want to go to the library and spend all day rereading some of those.
