    The Golden Book of Fairy - O.R. Melling
    (a compilation of The Hunter's Moon, The Summer King, The Light-Bearer's Daughter, and The Book of Dreams)

    Modern adventures set in Irish fairy folklore. The one I found most exciting was The Book of Dreams which dealt with how the fey opperate in North America along aside the spirits who were already here and the spirits of other immergrants.

    Excellent list! I've made it "sticky" so it's easier for people to find.

    I also have fond memories of two books in particular:

    "Witches" by Colin Hawkins and an old witch (really!)

    and

    "The Witch's Handbook" by Malcolm Bird.

    They're basically picture books with lots of amusing stuff about witches (mostly stereotypical but with a positive spin on things).

    A Gift of Magic - Lois Duncan

    I'm not sure if it's still in print, but some of the cooler public libraries should have it.

    The Green Knowe series by Lucy M. Boston is a fantastic set of books about the Ghosts of an old English manor house that appear to a loney boy (and later his friends) that spend time in the mysterious home.

    I am the religious right. Just not the religion most people expect.


    Contrary to popular belief, Hello Kitty is not my totem animal.

    I'd have to add Fire Bringer by David Clement-Davies. The deer worship Herne! *giggles with delight*

    And Eragon and Eldest by Christopher Paolini... And Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. I don't think I saw those mentioned...

    Cheers,

He called for unfaithful disciples who, by their betrayal, would prove their loyalty. He wanted people to obey him by following themselves and no one else, not even him. Particularly not him."

    Let me know what you think of Celtic Fairy Tales, I'd be interested in something like that for my son.
    We just discovered a new series: The Dragon Slayer Academy by Kate McMullen (the first book in the series is The New Kid at School). This series is aimed at kids from 1st to about 3rd or 4th. My son is Kindergarten and loved having it read to him.
    Another good book that we are reading is Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke. This is an awesome book!
    Don't forget the Dragonology books.
    How to Train Your Dragon, How to Speak Dragonese, and How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse by Cressida Cowell (These are part of the Hiccup Horrendous Haddock 111). My son LOVES these books!
    The Edge Chronicles by Paul Stewart
