Ten grade-school classics you’ll never be too old to reread

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Melissa Albert tagged ten grade-school classics you’ll never be too old to reread, including:
A Wrinkle In Time, by Madeleine L’Engle

“It was a dark and stormy night.” Nothing could be cozier than cocoa in a warm kitchen on a storm-tossed night, or creepier and more thrilling than a sudden interruption from the outside world. After this stellar beginning in the Murry family home, Meg Murry, her brilliant little brother Charles Wallace, and her soulmate, Calvin, follow three strange old women (who are much, much more than they appear) through time and space to save the Murrys’ scientist father from, nbd, forces of pure unadulterated evil. Lucky for us readers, this was just the first in a five-book series.
