My girls and I just finished reading Silver Wolf by Paige Dixon. Written in 1973, it's the story of a young wolf, told from his point of view, and the life of his pack. I remember reading it over and over when I was around nine or ten years old. It was great to share it with my girls, and I remember why I loved it so much. The writing was so vivid, it took me there.
Next week, we start The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken. I'm really excited to read that one again too. It's the story of two little girls who have to escape from real and human "wolves"--a wicked governess and her cohort who make them virtual slaves at a "school for girls".
Yeah, I had a thing for wolves back then. But, there were others too--The Little House series, Anne of Green Gables, Jane Eyre.
Today's question: What were some of your childhood favorites? Have you re-discovered any of them in recent years?
