Was AtBotNW for younger readers? I read it eons ago, but haven't
reread it for years. But I also loved the two Princess books, and
*love* "The Light Princess"! There's a great collection called "A
Book of Princesses" (although I think it may have been published
under another name also), which has that, and E. Nesbit's
"Melisande", which is also wonderful.
Oh, another rec I don't think anyone has mentioned, (from Becca),
William Nicholson. The third one in his trilogy is just out here,
but Becca hasn't read it yet.
