Quite a number of children's classic books (both contemporary and not) are taking place this year, and I'd like to take a moment to share some of my favourites with you.....
A Wrinkle In Time by Madeline L'Engle is also turning fifty. Currently, this wonderful story of time travel has 10 million copies in print in the US. In January, Macmillan Children's Publishing will be releasing a fiftieth anniversary commemorative edition which will include "include an introduction by Katherine Paterson; L'Engle's Newbery acceptance speech; never-before-published photos; and an afterword by L'Engle's granddaughter, Charlotte Jones Voiklis."
Happy Anniversary to these, some of my favourite books ever... and quite a few more... Here's an article from PublishersWeekly to tell you more about them.
