We recently invited the Stonehenge Circle Writers to share their favorite books when they were children. Read on for reflections on beloved books of childhood.
Cheryl Mahoney: From the age of ten to twelve, the funniest book I had ever read was I Want to Go Home! by Gordon Korman. I read it twelve times (I kept a count). I’ve read it again since, and it’s still funny!
Karen Blakely: I was nearly eight when I read A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. I loved it so much I decided then and there that I was going to be a writer some day. And I’ve never changed my mind.
Ingrid Victoria: Sometime around age 8, my parents borrowed an audiobook version of The Dragonslayers by Bruce Coville from the library. I loved all the jokes and twists on classic fairy tale tropes, and kept reborrowing it so many times that my parents bought me my own copy for my birthday. I still read all goblins and giant spiders in the voices used in that audiobook.
