The Chronicles of Narnia Boxed Set
The Chronicles of Narnia Boxed Set
"another great one. these stories have - more then any other, probably - opened up my imagination and all that, as a child. magical, heart-warming and absolutly (pardon my french:) lovely!"
The Great Book of Amber: The Complete Amber Chronicles, 1-10 (Chronicles of Amber)
The Great Book of Amber: The Complete Amber Chronicles, 1-10 (Chronicles of Amber)

The Book of Three (A Yearling book)
The Book of Three (A Yearling book)
"the first book in the prydain chronicles. a tale of adventure, magic, first love, and the hard road to being a hero, so to speak... loosely based on welsh mythology, and rather simply (fittingly) told"
The Compleat Enchanter (FANTASY MASTERWORKS)
The Compleat Enchanter (FANTASY MASTERWORKS)
"a very nicely written tale of magic combined with science (but, thank god, not too much of the later). for adults mainly, and great if you care to learn a bit about different mythologies and such like"
The Hobbit
The Hobbit
"a really nice book by itself, but mainly thought of (lately at least) as an introduction to the truly great lord of the rings. it has a lot more humor than TLOTR, though, and a few REALLY nice riddles"
Peter Pan (Penguin Popular Classics)

The Wind in the Willows (Penguin Popular Classics)

Three Men in a Boat, to Say Nothing of the Dog! (Penguin Popular Classics)

The Earthsea Quartet: "A Wizard Of Earthsea"; "The Tombs of Atuan"; "The Farthest Shore"; "Tehanu" (Puffin Books)
