Mistress Masham's Repose - about an orphaned girl living with a mean guardian who discovers an island with Lilliputians. She thinks she can treat them like toys, but learns to respect them as people. I read it every year at camp, stupidly lent it out to my niece and never got it back, and recently ordered a new copy from Amazon.

I love children's books Some of my favorite authors include Beverly Cleary (my all time favorite- read her autobiographies) Judy Blume, Jerry Spinelli, Louis Sacher, Betsy Byers, Dav Pilkey, Cynithia Rylant, Ellen Raskin ( I love her book nothing ever happens on my street- the pictures are excellent) Barbara Parks (but I'll take Ramona any day over Junie B) William Steig, Paula Danziger,Robert McCloskey
I also read books again and again The Giggler Treatment by Roddy Doyle is very funny, I actually laughed out loud while reading it with students I like the Henry Reed books by Keith Robertson A good book for teenage readers is One Fat Summer by Lipsyte

Dont wanna be fatesealed!
When I was in 7th grade I was chosen to go to a Young Writers Conference where a story was read BY the author to all of the kids. I'll never forget it as long as I live. And its a staple gift at all baby showers. It's called I'll Love you Forever by Robert Munsch. Classic. Tearjerker for one and all!!

What about the Little Miss and Mr. Men books by Roger Hargreaves (Little Miss Scatterbrain, Mr. Small, etc.)? I used to read them all the time in elementary school, and now the kids in my classroom are always asking me to read them.
Kevin Henkes writes some really cute books with mice as the main characters which my students (and myself!) also enjoy.

does anyone know anything about another children's book that is probably from the 30s
I'm looking for a children's book from the 30s or 40s that's about a little girl who runs away and joins the circus. The title might be "Beyond the Scenes" or "Behind the Scenes." My mom recalls it from her youth and I'd like to find it for her for Christmas! Thanks.

Any of the Graeme Base books, but The Eleventh Hour, Sign of the Seahorse and Animalia, in particular - absolutely amazing detail and creativity.
