The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
One of the first books that made me feel like a real literary young adult, The Secret Garden captures my imagination just as much now as it did back then. Every adult could stand to remember the triumph of children's hearts over the societal opinions of adults.
I also love The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. What caught my eye about this book as a kid was the glittery foil of the Rainbow Fish's scales. As an adult, what stands out is its cautionary tale of vanity and its universal message of how sharing brings happiness. —Drew Scarantino, Editorial Assistant, Magazine Rights
