Little Old Mrs Pepperpot, by Alf Prøysen I loved these books as a child, and my kids loved them too. Pepperpot shrinks at the most inopportune times. Which leads to lots of adventures for the doll size woman.
The Silver Sword - Ian Serraillier-read this for the first time in grade and then read it every year or 2 after that for a very long time - at least through college. Love, love this book. One of the best I have ever read.
