Top 100 Children's Novels: 14-13
This one is my favourite Harry Potter book, with Deathly Hallows coming in as number two. There are still two that haven't made the list, but Betsy said that no complete series did; I'm assuming that Half-Blood Prince is the one that didn't make it, and that Sorceror's Stone (or Philosopher's Stone, if you prefer) will be in the top ten.
And this time I'm using a Swedish cover.
I read this one back in '07, whilst reading my way through the Newbery Medal winners. (It won in 1978.) I agree that it's a pretty good book, but it certainly didn't cross my mind when I was making my top-ten list to submit for this poll.
