QotD: Books From My Childhood

What books did you love as a child? 

I read & re-read the Lloyd Alexander series of books (The Book of Three, The Black Cauldron, and so on). I seem to remember the library's editions of them had woodcut style artwork which I really liked as well.

I had a huge format edition of Pinocchio (the real full story), with beautiful artwork on every page. I still have it in fact, but it's so worn out from the many times I read it, that I wasn't really able to read it to my kids.

And I recall being in about 6th or 7th grade (I think), and my mom having to hide my copy of Gone With the Wind so I would get any chores or homework done. I still enjoy reading that, too.

Oh, and now that I think about it, I remember really liking the Borrowers series too. I loved how they used the common household objects in imaginative ways.
