Book tastes

I love children's books and read them widely and often, so I would love to receive your favorite children's book that no one seems to have heard of (I've got your standard award winners and classics here already). I enjoy fantasy and science fiction, especially if there is a female main character, and I don't own very much of it. My book club is currently reading choose-your-own Jewish literature, and to stretch ourselves, it can't be a book about the holocaust. If you have a favorite that fits the bill, send it my way!

Don't get this!

Not big on most westerns or romance novels.

Other notes

I read a lot, but enjoy a wide variety of genres and styles, so avoid the bestseller lists and send me something unique that you enjoyed.

libraryperilous: Bernard Malamud's The Assistant has a price point of $15 and would be a good choice for Jewish literature not about the Holocaust. Chaim Potok would be another good choice. (Mon, 03 Dec 2018 11:58:33 -0500)

Capybara_99: "The Silly Book" by Stoo Hample is the formative children's book of my youth. Believe it is back in print - inspired nonsense. (Wed, 05 Dec 2018 18:15:51 -0500)

caras_galadhon: My go-to for children's literature that many haven't heard of is Michael Ende's Momo. I love this book more than is reasonable, and the main character is a young girl. Another that might be a fun read is The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming: A Christmas Story by Lemony Snicket. (Thu, 06 Dec 2018 12:40:40 -0500)

lorannen: Done. (Sat, 08 Dec 2018 17:17:05 -0500)
