QotD: Books From My Childhood

What books did you love as a child? 
Submitted by hearts

I was a big fan of Roald Dahl and Daniel (Manus) Pinkwater. Pinkwater's earlier stuff is great (Lizard Music and the Hoboken Chicken Emergency stand out in my mind), but he's gotten a little too goofy and cutesy in the past several years. Dahl is just great, both his fiction and his autobiographical stuff.
