Why, what a coincidence. Here I am saying how blogs are great because they review older books, and Gina at AmoxCalli puts forth a request for guest bloggers in Classic Children's Literature.
Gina says that one thing she wants for her blog to do is "review and recommend some of those great children's books from the past. You know, books like Little Women, The Secret Garden, the Little Prince, The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet, Oz books, etc. Any book you came across as a child or adult that made a profound impact, the ones that made you love kidlit. If you're interested in reviewing,", go add a comment to her post.
I just went and put in a request to review The Mark of the Horse Lord by Rosemary Sutcliff; I have the ancient 1965 edition, but this newer cover from 2006 is hot.
