  1. Great picks :)

    I've never read Alice in Wonderland. Everyone thinks I have and I love it because I like tea, but Alice Carrol can have written it locally to me all he wants, I don't care for his drugged up writing.

  2. All are on the 1001 Children's Books You Must Read list. Several of them I never ran across until then. I still have yet to read the Chalet books.

    Here's my Top Ten: Childhood Favorites.

  3. You've got some really great choices on your list! I adored Roald Dahl. I still do really...

  4. I loved Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. I've read that series a few dozen times. Great list.

  5. Yes!!! Great picks! I LOVE Anne and the Pevensies!!

  6. Great picks! I loved A Wrinkle in Time so much as a kid! :)

  7. Aw, this brings back such fond memories. ^.^ I loved Narnia. I swear my sister and I wore out the dramatised CDs for that. We didn't even pause before starting the series again. I never really clicked with The Dark is Rising though. The movie is waaaay different. o.O My TTT!
