I CAN ACTUALLY THINK OF FAR MOAR CHILDREN'S BOOKS IL THAN ~*~TEEN BOOKS~*~, AND IT'S NOT JUST THE NOSTALGIA.

I TRIED TO READ FIVE CHILDREN AND IT, BUT NEVER FINISHED BECAUSE IT WAS SO BORING.

Three novels in one, but all interconnected, so it was fun. I loved the time period it was written in and the old style of the children. It was full of magic and adventure, so it was a fun read.
