E.L. Konigsburg died on Friday. While she was always known best for “From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler,” I loved her other Newbery Award-winning book, “The View from Saturday,” more. “The View from Saturday” is one of my favorite books from childhood.
This has also given me an idea. I think I will start an occasional series on books from my childhood. I’ll re-read them and see how they stand up to the way I remember them.
But until then, thanks Ms. Konigsburg for a lifetime of amazing books. Read more here.
