Nov. 29th: It's a big day for author birthdays, with Louisa May Alcott (1832, Little Women) C.S. Lewis (1898, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe) and of course Madeline L'Engle (1918) with the wondrous A Wrinkle in Time. You might also want to check out 100 Cupboards (http://www.best-childrens-books.com/100-cupboards.html), a newer book which reminds our reviewer of two of these authors!
