Reading Meme Day 13

Posted by spragujs on January 18, 2011

See Day 2 for why I’m doing these all out of order and stuff.  I was able to come up with this one without too much thought.  My favorite childhood book.  I wouldn’t have thought this one would be so obvious to me, but turned out it was!

Wendy and the Bullies cover artWendy and the Bullies by Nancy K. Robinson was my favorite.  Blurb:

Wendy knows where all the bullies are–but what can she do about them?  What can she do when she’s face-to-face with a dangerous bully like Stanley Kane?

I’d previously thought that Where the Red Fern Grows was probably first book I ever reread, but now I’m pretty sure that’s not the case.  I know I reread this book.  I have no idea who/where I got it from, but it was the coolest.  Wendy’s ability to strategize (in spite of the fact that rereading it as an adult clearly shows there’s no such detail in the book) made her my hero.  😉  Also, I don’t know if this was the book that made me love books with maps and maps in general, but the back of the book even had a map.  Woot!  My first book with a map!
