THE PEOPLE OF SPARKS.
THE WHITE MOUNTAINS. Reading that book was the beginning of a passion for science fiction that lasted until Rob was about 14 or perhaps older.
When I got back home in March, I learned that the Christopher series has been in print continuously since they were written in the 70s. Naturally, then, I ordered them for Malcolm. Since getting back to Michigan this month, I read that book that Rob had loved so much. Not usually a fan of science fiction, I was captivated by this page-turner. Yesterday Malcolm and I had a long conversation about science fiction literature. I told him enough, I hope, about the Tripods series to inspire him to read THE WHITE MOUNTAINS, when he's finished with the Embers series. What fun to talk books with my grandchildren! And any of my followers with elementary-age sons or grandsons, I can highly recommend these two series!
