I'm re-reading The Secret Garden. It's a wonderful book. The one I'm reading is one of those Barnes & Noble collectible hardcover editions with a lilac cover. (They are only ten dollars and they have most of the classics.) The one I read as a child was a paperback Dell Yearling edition with a light green cover. The other book by the same author, A Little Princess, had a pink cover. The Barnes & Noble version does as well. I guess they figured that one has to have a pink cover.
Children's books stay with you in a way that adult books don't always. When I was coming back from dinner with D the other night, we passed a building that said Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. I was starstruck! That was where Dell Yearling was headquartered, and that was my favorite imprint as a child. It was like seeing a rock star or something. But better.
