I was first hooked with Beverly Cleary with all the Ramona books and then read everything by her. I moved to Judy Blume after reading "Freckle Juice". Then I couldn't get enough of her books. I loved "The Great Brain" by John Fitzgerald and then read that whole series of books. Later I was hooked on Little House on the Prairie and the Chronicles of Narnia. I still have those two sets from when I was young hoping my kids would love them as much as I did. But only 1 of my 5 girls enjoys reading as much as I do.

When I was young, I read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and (like so many others) I just fell in love with it. Since then I've probably read around 95% of Roald Dahl's books, and at gun point I'd have to say my favorites are Matilda and The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar.

I love Roald Dahl, he's a genius! The Dickens of children's literature, you might say.

Does the Animorphs series count here?

Love the Animorphs! I used to read them with my kid, but she hasn't been interested lately, & she refuses to read the last book, so I don't know how it all ends! K.A. Applegate has other science fiction series for youth, too.

"The Thief of Always" by Clive Barker

I rarely re-read a book...but I've devoured this one half a dozen times!

I also agree Roald Dahl deserves a big nod to his stories.

Definitely "Old Yeller" by Fred Gipson. Still a book I wish I'd written myself! Great coming-of-age story, told in a unique, realistic voice. Forget the Disney film. This is a great book.
