Gift Book for a kid...

When I was young I devoured series. Encyclopedia Brown books, Nancy Drew books, Hardy Boys, The Black Stallion series. the Marguerite Henry horse books...then I found Dragonlance and I was hooked.

 Here is a book I particularly loved. I don't know if it is still available, but was part of a series about various dog breeds. I still wish I had a saluki.

I also recall a large size picture book of the black stallion, with fabulous drawings inside.

So, I guess if I were going to gift a book of my past to a kid today, it would depend on the kid. Mystery, animals, or fantasy... To me, so long as they read something they find interesting, it doesn't much matter what.


  1. As crazy as I was about all things ancient Egypt as a kid (and an adult), how did I miss this one? (Goes off to search...)
