Good morning Everyone! I am wondering if you have a BOOK or AUTHOR in MG literature that you consider part of the canon of MG literature. Can be new or classic.

Off the top of my head:

THE GIVER by Lois Lowry
WRINKLE IN TIME by Madeleine L'Engle
THE WESTING GAME by Ellen Raskin

Wonderful picks! I'd add Diana Wynn Jones to the mix, plus a few personal favorite titles like Counting by 7s, Blackthorn Key, Fog Diver, A Crooked Kind of Perfect, and Wildwood (trilogy). I'm sure there's more--but I want to cover all my MG bases. Cheers!
