Ivan is a silverback gorilla who lives in a little zoo attraction inside a shopping mall. His best friends are the other beasts, and he spends his days in observation of the people who come and go. When a baby elephant named Ruby comes to live there, too, Ivan suddenly has to face the reality of his world and find some way to make it better. Adorable and funny and sweet and hopeful, this is going to be an award contender in 2012 for sure.

The most twisted, surreal, hilarious, disturbing book in Roald Dahl's body of work includes no magical powers or strange creatures. Boy, Dahl's nonfictional memoir, leaves the reader as wide-eyed and slack-jawed as his fiction. What this account of Dahl's actual childhood demonstrates is that his great achievement as a writer is the precision of his memory. He remembered vividly what the fear of a spanking or the anticipation of a licorice bootlace was like for a child; it would take fantastical stories of impossible worlds to capture them accurately.

I can still remember reading The Little Prince for the first time: where I was, how much I cried, how much I thought about it afterward. Reading it as an adult was a similar experience, but with different thoughts and different tears. Much like The Phantom Tollbooth, this becomes a slightly different book each time you read it, but I promise you will never look at roses or the stars the same way.

If you have ever hated your friends, loved your friends, wronged them, been wronged by them. If you have ever felt gross and been mean. If you have ever felt smart but still confused and lost and misunderstood and abandoned and annoyed. Harriet gets through it, and we get through it with her.

Holds its own against similar, but more widely recognized classics (think Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Wind in the Willows, and The Little Prince). This is a great book to introduce young readers to the concept of wordplay, and is especially good for visual thinkers with short attention spans. This was the only book my brother would read when we were little. Now he makes special effects for infomercials and bad movies that air on the SciFi Channel. This is still his favorite book, though he has also come to appreciate Cormac McCarthy. I guess that about sums up getting old.

Although someone does get trapped in a well, this book features a pet guinea pig named Gulliver instead of a sheepdog named Lassie and is better for it.

Born with a facial deformity and entering school for the first time, August isn't sure what to expect, but he knows it's not all going to be good. What transpires, in alternating points of view, is a subtle but profound transformation -- in his family, in the school, but most importantly, in Auggie himself. This is a simple but important story about the bravery of one boy and the community that accepts him, no matter the consequences.
