QotD: Books From My Childhood

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

I was, and am, a huge Bradbury geek.  I must have read The Martian Chronicles a dozen times in five grade alone. 

Let's see…the Prydain Chronicles by Lloyd Alexander.  The Oz books by L. Frank Baum.  The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann Wyss.  Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson.  All of Heinlein's young adult novels.  Both the White Mountains trilogy and the Burning Lands trilogy by John Christopher.  The Tarzan books and the Barsoom series by Edgar Rice Burroughs.  The Fuzzy books by H. Beam Piper.

Dozens more.  Hundreds.
