Who’s Your Favorite Childhood Author?

NPR is reporting that a new Dr. Seuss book will be available in the fall.

I’m so excited! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Dr. Seuss.

I have every book he’s ever written (venerated on the top shelf of one of my many, many, bookcases) but apparently not every story.

But you can bet I will by this fall!

These seven collected tales were printed in magazines in the 50s, and never collected into any volume. According to the article, some of them have not been in circulation in over 60 years.

How cool is that?

I have other favorites from childhood, including Milne and Nesbit (and Heinlein and Asimov, but they hardly qualify – even if I was reading them all together).

So: if you could have a “collected works” of any one childhood author on your top shelf, who would it be?
