“What was the first book (or book series) you really fell in love with?”
It's hard to remember back that far, but I'll go with Laura Ingalls Wilder and the Little House on the Prairie series. I probably read the whole set only once, but read my two favorites, On the Banks of Plum Creek and The Long Winter, many times. The set I had was illustrated by Garth Williams, who also drew for Charlotte's Web and A Cricket in Times Square among other famous books.

I loved the Little House stories because they were about sisters (I have an older one). I also loved reading about how things were different and simpler in the past. I thought it would have been very cool to live underground (for a little while anyway), like the family does in the Plum Creek book. Plus I was a fan of the TV show.
