Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The Wizard of Oz is wonderful, but too old - it was published 109 years ago.

As is Heidi - first published in 1880.

Carmela Ah,that they are.I should have researched my list
a bit better.There,I've updated it to 150 years.Now we can vote on Heidi and The wizard of Oz too!



message 3: by Dianna (new)

Dianna Burdick The Ghost of Dibble Hollow is a book that both my sister and I read way back in 1971 when I was 10 and she was 11 respectively. I purchased a used copy for my 8 year old son to read, and it is the best $18 I ever spent. I wish it would be reissued. What a great story. I cried like a baby at the end.


message 4: by Bob (new)

Bob B The Ghost of Dibble Hollow is awesome. I read it multiple times as a kid.
