To Kill a Mockingbird | Harper Lee 1960 | Jacket by Shirley Jackson One of my favorite books of all time!!!
To Kill a Mockingbird: One of my favorite books, favorite movies, favorite stage plays, favorite children's play. This is the Great American Novel.
"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel—a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s.

Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome. My childhood reading was definitely English flavoured, and yet we identified so strongly with the characters, wanting so much to create our own adventures

Swallows and Amazons, by Arthur Ransome. Always wanted to be the children in this book enjoying life up in the Lakes. Brilliant book to curl up and read on a summer's day. If you enjoyed it then there are plenty of sequels to enjoy as well!
After receiving permission from their father, who is in the Royal Navy and away at sea, the four kids set off in their boat, Swallow, to camp on an Island in the middle of the lake. Description from storytimesecrets.blogspot.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images

Children's Fiction In Library FICTION WHI Stuart Little : White, E. B. (Elwyn Brooks), 1899-1985 : Book, Regular Print Book : Toronto Public Library
Happy 115th birthday to E.B. White! During his life, White wrote some of best known children’s books of the past century, such as Charlotte’s Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan. He captured the imagination of children everywhere with his talking animals, while at the same time teaching them important lessons, like the value of friendship.
Stuart Little is a 1945 children's novel by E. B. White. Go mouse Go! A precursor to Pynchon's Gravity's Rainbow.
Stuart Little by E.B. White. Timeless literature for children, as well as adults who never grew up. *Favorite*
Free literature study: E. B. White's Stuart Little (3rd - 6th Grade) - I liked this a lot but kids were not as into it. Maybe not enough swords and sorcery, like we are used to. I thought it was jaunty and just surreal enough to work.
Stuart Little is a 1945 children's novel by E. B. White. It was illustrated by the artist Garth Williams.

A String in the Harp by Nancy Bond, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1416927719/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_alp_0tJuqb1PWFKRZ
A String in the Harp by Nancy Bond. (1976) Relates what happens to three American children, unwillingly transplanted to Wales for one year, when one of them finds an ancient harp-tuning key that takes him back to the time of the great sixth-century bard Taliesin.
A String in the Harp by Nancy Bond What we didn’t expect was to be thrown into the landscape and mythology of Wales. The writing and plot are brilliant and the imagery of Wales left us wanting to get on the next plane. Throughout the weaving of past and present there are always the charming people of Wales in both the city and countryside. This book didn’t win a Newbury Award for nothing. A truly great read. To find out more about Taliesin have a look here.
