"The Never Ending Story", Michael Ende - After years of requesting it for Christmas, my mum finally tracked down for me the version of this book that I so coveted. It is printed in red and green ink to differentiate between the action that takes place in the story, and the story within the story. Quite a thing of beauty!
Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans - Nothing frightens Madeline--not tigers, not mice, not even getting sick. To Madeline, a trip to the hospital is a grand adventure. A true classic, Madeline continues to enchant readers more than sixty years after its first publication. A Caldecott Honor Book
A Sweeping Family Saga - "The Thorn Birds" by Colleen McCullough- This is one of my all-time favorites. Also loved the TV mini series with Richard Chamberlain and Rachel Ward.
