Golden Hair

The Court of the Stone Children

The Court of the Stone Children by Eleanor Cameron

Rereading books you enjoyed as a child can be interesting.  Particularly if you do a number and the only conclusion you can come to, instead of "How did I enjoy such rubbish?" or "How did I manage to think this a fluffly little adventure?", is "Whatever was I thinking?"  Some are better, some are worse, some have transformed themselves into profundity -- and there's absolutely nothing in your memories to tell you which will be which until you buckle down and reread.
