I "discovered" reading books in about the 5th grade. Though only 5 years old, our grade school was bursting at the seams and the beautiful new library was reconverted into classrooms. All the library books were distributed to each classroom where they sat on windowsills for our perusal. That's where I discovered Mr. Wicker's Window and it introduced me to the joy and adventure of reading and I guess I have to say it changed my life. I've never forgotten the title of this book and my memories of ...more

Before there was Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and the rest of today's heroes, there was Chris Mason and Mr. Wicker, whose adventures were chronicled in a trilogy that this book begins.

This was my favorite book from elementary school days, read aloud to us by a teacher who chose wonderful books that I have cherished all my life.

This was my introduction to time travel, and to the Revolutionary War days, both of which I am still keen on! I just received this new edition with the original cover and artwork as a gift, and am rereading it with great pleasure.

A Fantastic book written in 1950's, but such a great adventure! Sort of Harry Potter meets Treasure Island and Aladdin (yes there is wizard magic!). This is first installment of a 3 book series and each is just as exciting as the last! Very hard to find in real books, but worth the read no matter how! Should be made into a movie!!!!!

How exciting that this book is newly available, albeit (seemingly) only via Kindle.
