Great, great book. The movie is pretty good, too.

Watership Down by Richard Adams is probably my favorite book of all time.

Not a children's story, despite being about bunnies ... I loved it too.

Terrifying, screws kids up ... yeah ... okay ....

I used to love Beverly Cleary's books when I was 12 years old.

Bridge to Terebithia frequently gets banned for content involving witchcraft ...

(definitely go for the Green Knowe books, if you can find them. Start with Children of Green Knowe)

A Series of Unfortunate Events is popular with my young'un.

Also the Dragonrider series by Anne Macaffrey (sp?),;

Thomas Covenant, Unbeliever consumed me as I consumed this series.

Ringworld series by Larry Niven. Fantastic Science Fiction.

Rendezvous with Rama by Arthur C Clarke. Awesome. Also sci-fi-y, but fantastic as well.

Question: You mentioned younger sibs... I'm curious about the relationship I guess. I have a younger sister, much younger, and for every birthday, I bought her books. Until she was about 18 or so, she could count on getting a heavy rectangular present from me. When she was older, she confessed that although she loved (and loves) me very much, it would have been nice to get a Barbie or something. My bad.
