Stories from Days Gone By – The View from Saturday

The first in my occasional series revisiting some books from childhood.

The View from Saturday by E.L. KonigsburgThe View from Saturday

Review: I remember this as one of my favorite books from when I was a kid. I’ve read it a number of times and it continues to be a favorite even now. The story has just enough quirkiness to make me smile but not so much as to be inaccessible. It’s about smarts over popularity and being kind to one another. The story also revolves around trivia which I always love and it has an ethereal/philosophical aspect that I can’t quite describe but warms my heart. Overall, still holds up now.
