Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter #4) by J. K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter #4)

This is where the series really hit it's stride. The Dementors in book 3 were a great addition, but it wasn't until Voldemort actually killed someone that he became a good nemesis. I hate to say one book in a well-connected series is the "best," but this is certainly a highlight.

Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin
Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

randolph.jim, September 21, 2011

This is gorgeous on so many levels. The writing, the artwork, even the fonts. It's full of fairy-tale like stories that wrap around each other and lead to an extremely satisfying conclusion. Everyone I've recommended it to, from third graders to grandparents have a deep love for this book. It's truly timeless. One cool thing: in most stories of this type, the lone child goes off on her adventures and we never hear from the parents again. Not so here. The parents, and their longing for their adventuring child, play an important role in the tale as well. A true triumph of the power of storytelling.
