Antoine I love Pippi as much as the next person, but how can a book continuously in print since 1945 be considered "cutting edge literature for the 21st century child"? I hope the book remains popular, but I have disqualified it from this list. I hope that isn't a problem.

Jeff Has anyone else read FingerTip Island? My school's using it for our imagination series project. It's so good! I couldn't stop laughing at Gus.

Herman Gigglethorpe What is Narnia doing here? C.S. Lewis died in 1963. . .
