A modern story-teller's tale takes the characters to the far north of an alternative Earth. The Northern Lights themselves are the bridge to another world. (In the USA the book was released as "The Golden Compass," somewhat missing the point.)

The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman 1998 Scholastic by Philip Pullman, http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00D9OPC9I/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_kt2Mtb0ZZBNS4
Will is twelve years old and he's just killed a man. Now he's on his own, on the run, determined to discover the truth about his father disappearance. Then Will steps through a window in the air into another world, and finds himself with a companion - a strange, savage little girl called Lyra. Like Will, she has a mission which she intends to carry out at all costs.
The Subtle Knife by Phillip Pullman “You going to be a scientist when you grow up?” That sort of question deserved a blank stare, which it got.
Philip Pullman wrote His Dark Materials trilogy as an anti-Narnia, an atheist's fictional plea against Lewis' hopeful Christianity...yet I find that Pullman's works where deeply spiritual and expansive for me...increasing rather than challenging my faith. Sorry Pullman. =)

The Ride of the Valkyries by William T. Maud, 19th c. British artist. One tradition links the Northern Lights with the sunlight glinting on the shields of the Valkyries. They were the servants of Odin who took brave warriors from the battlefield to Valhalla to await the final apocalyptic battle. ©Mona Evans, “Tales of the Northern Lights” http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art2161.asp

One of the best Young Adult Fantasy series ever written. If you like fantasy and you like Arthurian Legend. Read this, yesterday.
The Dark is Rising. Susan Cooper vs. David L. Cunningham. The movie just didn't have enough time to create an investment for the audience but it did get me to read the entire The Dark is Rising series which was a fun read. Book > Movie.
The Dark Is Rising (second in the five-book series) by Susan Cooper - Another one to read every Christmas, full of snow, ancient legends spilling over into modern times, and a young boy with a magical destiny.
the dark is rising, susan cooper. the most beautiful book, incorporating celtic mythology and the rural yorkshire landscape. perfect for escaping the world on a quiet afternoon when all your homework's finished.
The very first "chapter book" I ever borrowed from the school library. It was the first time I realised it was possible to be so engrossed in reading that the world around you seemed to just stop. I was 9 and have been hooked on Fantasy books ever since.
The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper (Dark is Rising Sequence). Will learns of his mystic destiny to fight evil on Midwinter's eve. Arthurian legend and a lot of action is mixed into this 5 book series. Start with this title or Over Sea, Under Stone. Search our catalog for a book at http://tewksbury.mvlc.org/eg/opac/advanced

Briar Rose: A Novel of the Fairy Tale Series
If you're not aware of the blog "Diamonds & Toads", let me now direct your attention to this wonderful resource: Run by Kate Wolford, a lecturer at Indiana University South Bend, this blog focuses on the analysis, research and writing of fairy tales as well as the general enjoyment of fairy tales and, while aimed to help her students, is available and accessible to non-students too. Kate, who's love of fairy tales is evident with every post, encourages dialogue on fairy tales from all sources and is working on getting an online magazine, specifically on fairy tales, up and running sometime during 2010 (more details to come). (We can't wait Kate!) In the meantime, she held a contest called "The Great 'Sleeping Beauty' Rewrite" and had a lot of excellent entries. The above gorgeous painting is one of my favorite artistic renditions of Sleeping Beauty and is by a later Pre-Raphaelite artist, Edward Burne-Jones. The requirements were that the story be unpublished elsewhere (ie 'new'), to retell 'Sleeping Beauty' and be 1 000 words or less. Entrants had one month to write it (from July 1st to July 31st). The story had to be 'G' rated but adult in tone and not geared toward children. Diamonds & Toads reserved the right to publish the story on their blog and keep it there, though authors were free to publish it anywhere else after the contest was over. And yes, there was a lovely fairy tale themed prize (you can see a picture on the blog). Kate was delighted with, not only the number of entries but the quality of them and, with her permission, I'm going to introduce you all to the stories (which are available to read HERE) over the next few days and show you just how many wonderful variations people came up with. But the good news doesn't end there. There's ANOTHER contest - just for READING the stories! (Details HERE on the August 7th entry.) You enter by reading, then making a comment... where and how, I'll leave up to you to figure out. (It's not difficult.) Contest ends at the end of August so get reading! (The prize is a lovely one-of-a-kind artwork by talented artist Cat Mallard, a.k.a. darklingwoods on Etsy and Twitter. (She has other fairy tale themed art too and all her work is beautiful, so check out her Etsy page HERE.) Part I of "The Great 'Sleeping Beauty' Rewrite" is posting tomorrow. Before we get to the new stories, though, I'd like to share two of my favorite retellings: Jane Yolen's Briar Rose and Robert Coover's Briar Rose (book covers are shown below and you can get more information on each by clicking on the images. Please note there are two covers for Jane Yolen's book currently available.) I recommend the audio book for this version too - unabridged of course! In the meantime, go check out the rest of "Diamonds & Toads". If you're not familiar with the story this blog is named for you can find more information there. ;)
I missed her when the book was over.

My favorite book since high school - I have read it countless times and it still moves me!
Christy; Catherine Marshall - 1969: Read in Junior High or High School for English class. Loved that it became a TV show. Christy begins with a young girl who hears a man preaching about how he needs people to volunteer to help the poorest of the poor in the Appalachian Mountains and she heeds the call. It's her story of how she truly grows up and gains much character, strength and gift of faith, while living with the people in the Appalachian Mountains. Beautifully told.
Christy by Catherine Marshall, one of my favorite books from high school days.
