“Those of us who write for children are trying to arm them for the life ahead with everything we can find that is true. And perhaps also, secretly, to arm adults against those necessary compromises and heartbreaks that life involves: to remind them that there are and always will be great, sustaining truths to which we can return.”

The recommendations include Where The Wild Things Are, the His Dark Materialstrilogy, and Peter Pan.
