This Guardian article about authors famous for the wrong book has me turning children's authors and titles over in my head. I do think Paula Fox's best book is One-Eyed Cat, not The Slave Dancer or Desperate Characters. I like Lois Lowry's Autumn Street more than The Giver, and Hilary McKay's The Exiles has it all over her books about the Cassons. In wake of my re-immersion in "Laura World" courtesy of Wendy McClure, I'm going with The Long Winter over any of the Wilder books with Little in the title.
Any iconoclasts feel like knocking something over?
