B is for Becky's Horse

Bis for Becky's Horse.

For this year's A to Z I'm featuring books I've read based on the Reading Challenge:

Today's books are books from my childhood. Besides the usual classics and series, I read quite a few one-off books. Here are two of them:

Becky's Horse by Winifred Madison

After winning a horse in a contest, Becky must decide whether to keep him -- she's longed for a horse for years -- or take the prize money to help an Austrian cousin orphaned during the invasion of Hitler's troops.

The Secret Life of Hilary Thorne by Marcia Wood

"With her father's new, high-pressured job on Madison Avenue and his resulting personality change, Hilary finds an increasing need to escape into a fantasy world peopled with characters from the books she has read. When her troubles at home and school mount, the fantasy world becomes so comfortable that Hilary almost decides to reside there permanently."

I always enjoyed this book for the reference to The Lord of the Rings!

What random books do you remember from childhood?
