    I remember my brother had to read this book for school and he didn't like it. I never had to read it for class, but I read it on my own and I loved it! Not sure why he said it was boring lol.

    So it's not really a children's book, but I read it when I was in middle school. Finished it in 2 days lol, I was hooked!

    Does anyone remember The Boxcar Children, Ramona series, or Where the Sidewalk Ends?

    I read all these countless times during elementary school when I finished my work early.

    OMG! You've read Enid Blyton! Wow! There are very few Americans who seem to have heard of her! I used to love her books as a child! icon_smile.gif
    My faves also include Tintin and Asterix. Oh and Phantom comics! Used to love them!

    Everything by Enid Blyton, as soon as I could read. I was totally sad when at 16 I read them for the last time.

    God the illustrations in these books were scarier than the actual stories! Pictures like this gave me nightmares!

    Loved "The Eleventh Hour" by Graeme Base. Richly illustrated scenes in a FABULOUS house, plus the whole additional decoding, clue finding, codex and details that kept me engrossed for hours up on hours.
