Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie
Haroun and the Sea of Stories

I have read this book more times than I can count. I first read it while traveling in New Zealand and couldn't shut up about it. When I moved back to the states, I lent it to everyone who would take it from me. When I became a teacher, I fundraised to get a class set and taught it to my 8th graders. The writing, story, and overall EVERYTHING about this book is exceptional. Every time I read it, I find something new to be excited about. The plot exists on so many levels, so kids of all ages (including adults) can get something amazing out of it. Seriously... it's awesome.
