Top 100 Children's Novels: 75-66

The next two installments (75-71 and 70-66) of Betsy Bird's "Top 100 Children's Novels" list are up at A Fuse #8 Production.

Henry Huggins (by Beverly Cleary, #66 on the list) was on the top-ten list I submitted.

I've read The Borrowers* (Mary Norton, #74), My Side of the Mountain** (Jean Craighead George, #73), Betsy-Tacy (Maud Hart Lovelace, #70), Walk Two Moons** (Sharon Creech, #68) and Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher (Bruce Coville, #67).

But I'd never heard of Love That Dog (Sharon Creech, #75) or My Father's Dragon (Ruth Stiles Gannett, #72).

Update 0930 18 Feb: I'd forgotten that Henry Huggins was on my list....
