Alan Garner's The Weirdstone of Brisingamen first cast its spell over the nation's children in 1960. This is the book that awoke my LOVE of reading......I still have a copy and revisit it regularly, it still manages to touch a place deep inside....WDxxx
Peter Pan. One of my personal favorites, and, in my opinion, one of the best books ever written. Nothing depicts the beauty of childhood innocence, and the sad inevitability of "growing up" quite like the story Peter.
