Stuff and Nonsense: Top 10 Tuesday: Fave Childhood Books


Top 10 Tuesday: Fave Childhood Books

For this week's Top Ten Tuesday, we're looking at the top ten books from our childhood or teen years that we'd love to revisit. I tried to pick books I haven't harped on too much about before, because me talking about Anne of Green Gables for the umpty-umpth time is kind of boring ... even for me! Instead, I've (mostly) listed books I flat out adored Way Back When, but haven't returned to since.

  • The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  • The Tombs of Atuan by Ursula K. Le Guin
  • Bunnicula by James Howe
  • The Spanish Smile by Scott O’Dell
  • The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann David Wyss

  • Danny the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl
  • Goodnight, Mr. Tom by Michelle Magorian
  • When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit by Judith Kerr
  • The Girl with the Silver Eyes by Willo Davis Roberts
  • This Place Has No Atmosphere by Paula Danziger

For kicks, I've featured the covers of the editions I read as a kid! Some of them are really terrible and I wonder what drew me to pick the book up to begin with. I mean, look at Good Night, Mr. Tom. That cover gives absolutely nothing away.
