Rereading childhood favourites [May. 12th, 2005|10:21 pm]
the childlike innocence preservation society


i've been on a kick of rereading books i enjoyed as a child (preteen, mostly). One such book, The Sword of Culann (Betty Levin) i only finished a few days ago. Out of curiosity, i did a quick search on the 'Net to see if it was still in print, and/or if there were other books available by the same author (the edition i have stated she had only written one other book at that point).

i wasn't able to track down a new copy of the book (several used ones, mind), but i did discover that there were two other books written later about two of the central characters; better yet, my local library has copies available. i'm now reading book two (A Griffon's Nest).

Does anyone have any particular favourite fiction books from their youth that they would recommend?

"No Flying in the House" and "Bridge to Terabithia". The ladder is my favorite. Read it with a box of tissue.

i keep trying to get my kids to read it, too. Hmm, maybe i ought to just reread it for myself, not a bad idea!
