For the record, I don't rate books at all unless they are unequivocally five stars–you know, books I would stand up for, possibly get involved in light fisticuffs in their defense. Books like The Outsiders and Chronicles of Narnia and A Wrinkle in Time. Otherwise, I just let my review (or lack thereof) speak for itself.
So glad I revisited this one. A childhood favorite that stands the test of time.more
The first of my favorite series of books; I come back to them again and again. This is my comfort food book. Previously read October 2006 and many times before that.more
