Of course, after I filmed this, I thought of about 20 more authors that I ought to have included in my list! And then I started thinking that I ought to have re-ordered them differently with some authors higher or lower on the list. It’s just too hard to choose!
Here are a few authors that also bear mentioning, but didn’t quite make the cut for this list…
D. J. McHale
Frank L. Baum
M. I. McAllister
These are the Children’s and YA books that I read in March!
The Willows in Winter
The Book of Dragons
Maid of Artemis
Urchin and the Rage Tide
Lost City of Faar
The Demigod Files
The Littles Go To School
A list of my top ten favorite fictional siblings! Who are your favorites?
And an honorable mention to Molly and Cynthia, who are stepsisters in “Wives and Daughters” by Elizabeth Gaskell ! They aren’t technically siblings, but they get credit for being so sweet to each other. They may not share DNA, but they share their hearts. Aawww….
