Today, we’re wishing the legendary children’s book author Lois Lowry a very happy 75th birthday! One of our all-time favorite authors of children’s literature, Lowry published her first kids book in 1977, and has since penned over 30 more. To celebrate Lowry’s birthday, we’ve put together a list of the all-time best authors of children’s literature written in English, from the contemporary to the classic, from the wildly magical to the wittily familiar. Here, we’re defining “children’s literature” as being novels aimed at the 9 to 13 set, a little bit young for YA proper, but well into the chapter book stage and getting ready for more meaty fare. After all, there’s no better way to prepare a child for a life of creativity and curiosity than to give them a bunch of great books during their formative years. Or at least we think so. Click through to read our list — and since we wanted to make this list three times over (but you’ve gotta stop somewhere), be sure to chime in with your own favorites in the comments!

今天,我们恭祝著名儿童文学家洛伊丝·劳里75岁生日快乐!作为历来最受喜爱的儿童文学作家之一的劳里于1977年出版了她的处女作,此后又创作了30余部作品。为了庆祝劳里的生日,我们草拟了一份有史以来最佳英文儿童文学家的名单,范围从当代作品到经典著作,内容从神奇魔法到俏皮精灵,全部包括其中。在此我们界定儿童文学的受众为9-13岁的儿童,虽比青少年要小一些,但已经到了可以阅读章回小说并准备博览群书的年纪。毕竟,再没有比给成长中的孩子一摞好书更好的帮助他们开启创造力与求知欲的方法了,至少我们是这样想的。请点阅此名单,之前我们曾想做比本榜长三倍的榜单(但你会读不下去),一定记得在评论处写下你最喜欢的人!

/

Lois Lowry
Lois Lowry, whose novels consistently blow us away, is one of only five authors who have been awarded the Newbery Medal twice — once for Number the Stars in 1990, and again for The Giver in 1993 (two more of her doubly awarded peers are also on our list!). Lowry does not shy away from disturbing or difficult topics — the Holocaust, dystopian futures, terminal illness — but instead addresses them head on with grace and captivating ability. Two decades later, we’re still arguing with our friends over whether Jonas dies or finds salvation at the end of The Giver. The question, like the book, still feels urgent, which is how we know she’s one of the best.

洛伊丝·劳里 

洛伊丝·劳里,其作品一贯扣人心弦,她是两得纽伯瑞金奖的五位作家之一 —— 一为1990年出版的《数星星》,二为1993年出版的《记忆传授人》(另有多位同样两得纽奖的作家也在榜单上)。她并不回避令人不安的疑难主题,如纳粹屠杀 、反乌托邦前途和不治之症,反而优雅迷人地迎难而上。20年后,我们依然与朋友们争论《记忆传授人》的结尾Jonas是去逝了还是得救了,这个问题和该书主题一样仍然亟待解决,这就是我们认为她是最佳之一的原因。

(译注:纽伯瑞儿童文学奖是由美国图书馆协会于1922年为纪念有“儿童文学之父”之称的英国出版商纽伯瑞而创设的奖项,与“国际安徒生奖”同为两大国际儿童文学奖项。“纽伯瑞奖”评选对象为上一年度出版的全球优秀英语儿童文学作品,纽奖每年颁发一次,金奖一名、银奖一名或数名。获奖作品多被美中小学校列为必读或选读书目,对美国以及世界的儿童文学具有一定的影响力。虽然近十几年来因评选等问题受到质疑而一直在走下坡路,但纽伯瑞奖仍然可以作为了解美国/英文儿童文学的窗口。)

(译注:《数星星》和《记忆传授人》是美国很多中学的必读书目,后者因主题敏感备受争议,在有些州属被禁之列。)

(译注:Holocaust:来源希腊语,原意是用火牺牲,在英、德语中指大屠杀。)

E.L. Konigsburg
Another two-time Newbery Medal winner, E.L. Konigsburg is also the only person to have won both a Newbery Medal and a Newbery Honor (which is basically the award’s honorable mention) in the same year — for the first two books she ever wrote, no less: From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler and Jennifer, Hecate, Macbeth, William McKinley, and Me, Elizabeth, both submitted at once to her no-doubt thrilled publisher. A full 29 years later, in 1997, she won the medal again for The View from Saturday, another classic. Her work effortlessly describes the interior lives of children trying to discover their own personalities, perhaps because she has based many of her characters on her own children and students, who were, she says, “softly comfortable on the outside and solidly uncomfortable on the inside.” Perhaps one of the reasons that her work is so enduring is that that quality never quite completely goes away.

E.L.柯尼斯伯格

另一位两得纽伯瑞金奖的作家是E·L·柯尼斯伯格,也是唯一同年囊获金银奖的作家(基本上银奖属荣誉奖),获奖作品竟然是作者首次写作出版的两本书:《天使雕像》和《小巫婆求仙记》,两奖同时颁给无疑是狂喜的出版商。整整29年后的1997年,她又因另一经典之作《相约星期六》荣获金奖。可能是根据她自己的孩子和学生塑造了许多人物的关系,其作品能轻松描绘出儿童发掘自身性格的内心活动,据她称这些人物是“外表随和自在,内心固执不安”的。也许其作品经久不衰的原因之一在于她从来没有大失水准过。 

(译注:《小巫婆求仙记》是柯尼斯伯格的处女作,1968年纽伯瑞儿童文学奖银奖。《天使雕像》获同年金奖,后拍摄同名电影。)

C.S. Lewis
Probably the most popular classic fantasy series in children’s literature, C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia has sold over 100 million copies and been published in 47 languages. The magical world of Narnia captivated children so intensely that one reader we know tells of crying uncontrollably at the end of the last book, desperate to be able to get to the fictional realm, certain that she believed enough. The now-obvious Christian allegory aside, these books are wonders of imagination that cement Lewis’s place among the best children’s lit authors of all time.

C·S·刘易斯

可能最受欢迎的儿童文学经典幻想系列小说就是C·S·刘易斯的《纳尼亚传奇》,纳已用47种语言出版并售出上百万册。纳尼亚的神奇世界是如此令孩子们着迷,有位读者曾告诉我们,她在读罢最后一部书后失声痛哭,想不顾一切地进入她笃信存在的虚拟王国。除了现在看来明显的基督教式寓言,是该书令人惊叹的想像力确立了刘易斯有史以来最佳儿童文学家的地位。

Philip Pullman
Speaking of C.S. Lewis — Philip Pullman is considered by some to be the “Anti-Lewis,” and His Dark Materials to be a direct rebuttal to The Chronicles of Narnia. We have found it in our hearts to love both (though we admit, we love Pullman best), and we think his books — captivating works of imagination filled with intelligent, passionate characters — are destined to go down in history as classics.

菲力普·普曼

既然谈到了C·S·刘易斯,那么菲力普·普曼被认为多少有点反刘易斯的味道,《黑暗元素》就是对《纳尼亚传奇》的直接驳斥。我们两者都爱(但承认还是最爱普曼)并认为后者的书,是充满智慧激情人物想像的消魂之作,注定被奉为经典并载入史册。

(译注:菲力普·普曼的黑暗元素三部曲之《黄金罗盘》曾被改编为同名电影。)

J.K. Rowling
Sure, it may be derivative, and it may not, as her detractors cry, be the most elevated of literature, but there’s no denying that J.K. Rowling has inspired millions of kids and adults alike with her Harry Potter series. Plus, we’re sorry, the stories, rife with wordplay and creative worldmaking, are just undeniably good — and they were especially wonderful for kids who got to grow up alongside Harry as his adventures got darker, weirder, and more dangerous, just like their own imaginations.

J·K·罗琳

或许是作品的衍生品,或许不是,最大限度地提高了作品的地位,尽管有贬低之声,但不可否认的是,J·K·罗琳与她的哈利波特系列同样激励了无数的成人和小朋友。另外,原谅我们这样讲,这些充斥着文字游戏和创意虚构的小说只是好得不容置疑,尤其对那些伴随着哈利愈加隐晦、离奇和危险的冒险成长起来的孩子们来说分外精彩,一切就好像他们自己的幻想一般。

Lewis Carroll
Of course we couldn’t forget the author of what might be the most well-known work of children’s literature across the globe, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Obsessed with wordplay and weird to the bone, Carroll was an odd egg, but we wouldn’t have it any other way — his innovative brand of literary nonsense became a phenomenon that has inspired countless reinterpretations, and his 1865 novel (1865!) is still a modern-sounding, popular work today. Can’t beat that.

刘易斯·卡罗尔

我们当然不能忘记也许是全球最知名的儿童文学作品《爱丽斯漫游仙境》的作者,痴迷于双关语,怪异到骨头里的卡罗尔就是个怪胎,但我们就是喜欢他这样,他那独特的无厘头式文学成为一种现象并启迪了无数的重释,他这部1865年的作品(1865年!)如今依然颇具现代感并畅销,无人能及。

(译注:刘易斯·卡罗尔是时任牛津大学数学讲师查尔斯·道齐森的笔名)

Madeleine L’Engle
We won’t list the many awards and lifetime achievement recognitions of the much-lauded Madeleine L’Engle here, and if you’re reading this list, you’ve probably read something by her and don’t need any extra encouragement from us, but suffice it to say that A Wrinkle in Time and its sequels are some of the best things to happen to children’s literature in the history of time. 50 years later, they’re still essential, inspiring, and completely strange. We love it.

马德琳·英格

我们此处不会列举备受推崇的马德琳·英格所获的诸多奖项和终身成就。如果你正在读这份名单,就可能已经看过她的作品并无需我们特别的推荐。只《时间的皱纹》和其续集就足以证明它们是儿童文学有史以来最佳作品之一。50年后的今天,它们仍然是不可或缺、鼓舞人心和匪夷所思的,我们爱它。

(译注:《时间的皱纹》是马德琳·英格《时间四重奏》的开篇小说,马德琳曾为演员,丈夫Hugh Franklin曾在电影The Swimmer中客串Denny )

Katherine Paterson
Paterson, author of classics like The Great Gilly Hopkins (which won the National Book Award), Bridge to Terabithia (which won the Newbery Medal), can also boast of winning the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award, sometimes called the “Nobel Prize for children’s literature.” The eighth most frequently challenged book of the nineties, Bridge to Terabithia is a difficult but essential part of the modern canon of children’s literature, and should not be missed.

凯瑟琳·帕特森

(荣获美国国家图书奖的)经典著作《养女基里》和(荣获纽伯瑞金奖的)《仙境之桥》的作者帕特森也可自诩曾获得享有盛誉 、有时也被称为儿童文学诺贝尔奖的国际安徒生文学大奖。在90年代最常被禁的书单中排名第8位的《仙境之桥》是现代儿童文学殿堂中困难但必要的组成部分,不容错过。

(译注:《仙境之桥》拍摄过同名电影)

Lloyd Alexander
The author of more than forty books (and one of the founders of kids magazine Cricket), Alexander is best known for his spectacular five book series The Chronicles of Prydain, whose final installment, The High King, won the Newbery Medal in 1969. Drawing on Welsh mythology, overflowing with wit and charm, these books were some of our favorites, and inspired countless other children as well. After all, what Assistant Pig-Keeper (or nerdy 10 year old, which is basically the equivalent) doesn’t wish to grow up to be a hero?

罗伊德·亚历山大

拥有40多部作品(儿童杂志《蛐蛐儿》的创办人之一)的亚历山大,以其全套五部的宏著《布莱德恩编年史》闻名于世,完结篇《至高王》荣获1969年纽伯瑞金奖。吸收威尔士神话元素且充满风趣魅力的该书是我们的最爱之一,同时它也影响了无数的小朋友。要是(基本相当于10岁呆子)助理猪倌不想当英雄又会怎么样呢?

(译注:《布莱德恩编年史》一书的元素来自于一本威尔士民间故事集《马比诺吉昂Mabinogion》。迪士尼公司曾把《布》其中一部《黑神魔》拍成动画,它是迪士尼历史上第一部有电脑参与制作的电影,该片使动画制作进入了新时代,但票房惨败。)

Judy Blume
Judy Blume, it seems, got us through just about everything. From Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing to Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great to Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret (which is probably technically a YA novel — Blume excels at both), she always manages to capture the trauma and joy and utter ridiculousness of being a kid like no one else.

朱蒂·布鲁姆

朱蒂·布鲁姆似乎陪伴了我们走过整个童年,从《四年级的无聊事》到《了不起谢拉》,再到《神啊,你在那里吗》(这本严格讲可能算青少年读物,布鲁姆两者都拿手),她总试图记录创伤、欢乐和作为一名与众不同孩子的荒谬。



国外网民评论翻译:

errr, one massive and obvious omission Roald Dahl! Wrote more well known & loved books than any in your list, and certainly ‘better’ than JK Rowling (unless this list is by an eight year old who has never read any Roald Dahl), that’s for sure!

绝对明显漏掉了罗尔德·达尔,他写的书比名单上的任何书都更受欢迎,当然也好过JK·罗琳了(除非这榜单是个没看过罗尔德·达尔任何作品的八岁孩子写的),那是肯定的。

(译注:罗尔德·达尔在中国最知名的儿童文学作品是《查理与巧克力工厂》,他写的成人短篇小说Man from the South多次被希区柯克和昆汀塔伦蒂诺等人改编为电影和电视剧,他还是007电影系列之雷霆谷的编剧,前妻是第36届奥斯卡最佳女主角得主Patricia Neal。Roald Dahl在世时因反犹而饱受争议。)

Where is A. A. Milne, with Winnie the Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner?! Before Disney got to them, these books were filled with joy, magic, poignancy, and adventure – true timeless classics.

写《小熊维尼》和《小熊维尼的小屋》的A. A. 米尔恩呢?在迪士尼改编以前,这部系列书充满了欢乐、魔力、辛辣和冒险,真正永恒的经典。



Ann - Tuesday Mar 20, 2012 at 11:17 am 
Seriously, Astrid Lindgren and Tove Jansson !?

认真地说,阿斯特里德·林格伦和托夫·杨森 !?

(译注:瑞典儿童文学女作家阿斯特里德·林格伦在中国最著名的作品是《长袜子皮皮》和《小飞人》)
(译注:芬兰女作家托夫·杨森曾作《木民谷》系列故事)

I like this list. I know how hard it is to encompass something like ALL of children’s literature into a list of 10. 
This is a pretty good start and I think you could add Robert Cormier, who wrote The Chocolate War and I am the Cheese.

我喜欢这榜单,我知道把所有儿童文学家汇总成一个只有10位作家的榜单有多难。这是个很好的开始,我想你应该把创作了《巧克力战争》和《我是奶酪》的罗伯特·科米尔加进榜单里。

(译注:《巧克力战争》与《麦田里的守望者》和《杀死一只知更鸟》齐名,是20世纪最具争议的青少年文学作品,至今仍长踞美国禁书榜榜首。罗伯特·科米尔喜写人性中黑暗面,他大部分作品中主角都以失败告终。)



Kerishma - Tuesday Mar 20, 2012 at 11:37 am 
Again, it’s hard to include everyone in a list of 10, but Roald Dahl seems like a glaring omission! And when I was a kid I loved LOVED the Junie B. Jones books by Barbara Park, as well as the books by Gail Carson Levine (who I guess would be better classified as YA…but still)

重复下,把这么多作家汇总成只有10位作家的榜单很困难,但明显遗漏了罗尔德·达尔!我还是小孩时那么爱巴巴拉·帕克写的《朱尼·琼斯》系列,还有盖尔·卡森·列文的作品(最好将其列为青少年读物,但还是推)。

(译注:盖尔·卡森·列文获纽奖作品《魔法灰姑娘》后改编为电影,由安妮·海瑟薇主演。)



Matt - Tuesday Mar 20, 2012 at 11:59 am 
Nicely done list — I mean, with the inclusion of Madeline L’Engle, Philip Pullman, and E. L. Koingsburg, it’s difficult to complain. Except of course with the exclusion of Norton Juster. Get rid of C. S. Lewis and include Juster.
Also, I’m glad to see J. K. Rowling included on here. Missing Roald Dahl is a bit of a disappointment, but I consider Rowling, particularly toward the end of the series (whether she needed a stronger editor or not) to be a much stronger writer than Dahl.

不错的榜单,有马德琳·英格、菲力普·普曼和E.L.柯尼斯伯格,很难说它不好,除了没有诺顿·贾斯特,把 C·S·刘易斯去掉换上贾斯特。
还有,很高兴J·K·罗琳在榜上。没有罗尔德·达尔有点小失望,我认为罗琳比达尔在系列作品的收尾上要强(不管前者是否需要配个强力编辑)。

(译注:诺顿·贾斯特:最知名的作品是《神奇的收费亭》,他写作并绘制插图的《点与线》被拍成电影,获得过奥斯卡最佳动画短片奖。)

I love this gem. http://www.amazon.com/Who-Peed-Pumpkin-Joann-Brogan/dp/1448925975

我喜欢这本好书。http://www.amazon.com/Who-Peed-Pumpkin-Joann-Brogan/dp/1448925975



Zach - Tuesday Mar 20, 2012 at 2:10 pm 
Lets get one thing straight, CS Lewis towers above Pullman, there no comparison. Also, There are about 4 selections that could have been replaced with Kenneth Grahame.

直说吧,C·S·刘易斯比普曼强多了,两位没法比。而且肯尼斯·格雷厄姆能取代榜上4位作家。

(译注:英国儿童文学作家肯尼斯·格雷厄姆名作是《杨柳风》、《黄金时代》、《梦里春秋》)



Cynthia Leitich Smith - Tuesday Mar 20, 2012 at 2:14 pm 
A quick shout out to some of my favorite children’s authors of color–Rita Williams-Garcia, Grace Lin, Monica Brown, Jacqueline Woodson, Allen Say….I could go on and on.

我能马上叫出我最爱作家的名字:里塔·维威廉姆斯·加西亚、林珮思、莫尼卡·布朗、杰奎琳·武森、阿伦·赛…我还能继续说下去。

(译注:非裔作家里塔·维威廉姆斯·加西亚因《疯狂的夏天》获2011年纽伯瑞金奖。)
(译注:美国华裔绘本作家林珮思的《月夜仙踪》融合了多个中国传统神话故事,该书获得2010年纽伯瑞银奖。)
(译注:智利裔作家莫尼卡·布朗最知名作品是纪念加西亚·马尔克斯的《My name is Gabito》)
(译注:非裔作家杰奎琳·武森成名作是《麦克林的孩子们》)
(译注:日裔作家阿伦·赛成名作是《爷爷的旅行》)



Philip Nel - Tuesday Mar 20, 2012 at 3:18 pm 
Restricting myself to the 9-13 age range, some prominent missing authors: Christopher Paul Curtis, Roald Dahl, Jacqueline Woodson, Shaun Tan, Tove Jansson. I realize that it’s hard to include all in a top 10, so here are two you could cut: Lewis, & L’Engle. Both wrote for young readers, but how many of their books are great? Lion, the Witch, & the Wardrobe (for Lewis), and A Wrinkle in Time (L’Engle). But The Magician’s Nephew? Not so much.

年龄限制在9-13岁的话,还遗漏了几个知名作家:克里斯托弗·保罗·柯蒂斯、罗尔德·达尔、杰奎琳·武森、陈志勇和托夫·杨森。我想在所有作家中只列前十位是困难的,可以把刘易斯和英格删掉。都是给孩子的书,但他们有几本杰作呢?只有《纳尼亚传奇》和《时间的皱纹》。《魔术师的侄子》么?(C·S·刘易斯作)可不够好。

(译注:克里斯托弗·保罗·柯蒂斯的《我是巴德 不是巴弟》获2000年纽伯瑞金奖,他是首位获纽金奖的非裔男作家)
(译注:澳洲华裔插画家陈志勇的代表作是《观像镜》、《兔子》和《抵岸》。绘本《失物招领》改编后获2011年奥斯卡最佳动画短片奖。)



Gina - Tuesday Mar 20, 2012 at 7:10 pm 
I read THE GIVER in elementary school and loved it. I read it in high school and thought I understood all the symbolism. I read it again in college and discovered so much more. Now I read it to my kids and fell in love all over again. Thank you Lois Lowry for writing books that matter.

小学时读过《记忆传授人》,我特喜欢。高中读时我觉得明白了书中所有的象征意义,上大学再读理解又深了一层。现在我给自己的孩子读这本书还喜欢重温它,感谢洛伊丝·劳里的创作。



Jessica Leader - Tuesday Mar 20, 2012 at 7:10 pm 
Hats off for naming Lowry as one of the Top 10! I’m rooting for her as a future ambassador of children’s literature. Among other things, she’s enormously versatile: realistic fiction, sci-fi, historical fiction; humor and tragedy; chapter books through middle-grade. In addition, while the above description celebrates her bravery in taking on complex topics, let’s also mention her humor! ANASTASIA AT THIS ADDRESS still makes me laugh harder than just about any book, and books like THE GIVER include funny moments as well. Happy birthday to one of my enduringly favorite writers, and thanks to her for working so hard to grace our shelves.
One peeve, though: No Walter Dean Myers??

欣赏前10榜单中提名劳里!我全力支持她成为儿童文学的未来大使。此外她还多才多艺:现实、科幻、历史体裁小说、悲喜剧及适合中高年级看的章回小说都拿手。还有,既然上文中赞扬她勇于创作复杂题材,让我们聊聊她的幽默吧!《我交了一个笔友》比任何书都搞笑,像《记忆传授人》这样的书中也有滑稽场面。祝我中意已久的作家生日快乐,感谢她努力写作给我们的书架增添了光彩。
只恼一点:为什么没有沃尔特·迪恩·迈尔??

(译注:沃尔特·迪恩·迈尔:知名非裔作家,涉及越战的《堕落天使》一书曾被禁。)



Anne - Tuesday Mar 20, 2012 at 8:24 pm 
Well isn’t Hans Christian Andersen missing!? I mean he is the man giving name to the award you call “The Nobel Prize for children’s literature”… Well I have to admit I’m European so I don’t know a few of these authors and therefore I don’t want to choose who goes – Just saying that H. C. Andersen should definitely be on the list (and Astrid Lindgren too).

漏了安徒生?儿童文学诺贝尔奖(国际安徒生文学大奖)可是以他的名字命名的。好吧我承认我是欧洲人,对有些作者不了解,所以不想删掉谁,我只想说安徒生绝对应该上榜(还有阿斯特里德·林格伦)。



Marguerite - Tuesday Mar 20, 2012 at 10:51 pm 
Leaving Roald Dahl out made me incredibly sad.

罗尔德·达尔不在榜上让我很难过。



Yvonne - Tuesday Mar 20, 2012 at 11:08 pm 
Interesting list, but can’t believe Roald Dahl is not on it.

有趣的榜单,但罗尔德·达尔不在榜上令人难以置信。



Rachel - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 5:28 am 
Noooooo you left out Roald Dahl!!!! My heart dropped when I clicked on number 10!!!

你竟忘了罗尔德·达尔!!!! 点到第10的时候我心都凉了!!!



Lenny - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 5:52 am 
Yeah. What everyone else said about Roald Dahl. Also, WHERE’RE ENID BLYTON & MARK TWAIN?! And a personal favourite: Richmal Crompton.

好了别人都提罗尔德·达尔,那伊妮·布莱顿和马克吐温呢?
本人偏爱:里奇马尔·康普顿

(译注:伊妮·布莱顿: 英国著名儿童作家,BBC曾为拥有多面矛盾性格的她拍摄传记,由暗黑系Helena Bonham Carter主演。著名作品有:《诺弟》、《五个小孩》、《七个小孩》。)
(译注:同为英国儿童作家的里奇马尔·康普顿最著名作品为“就是威廉”系列。)
(译注:马克吐温最知名的儿童文学作品是《哈克贝利·费恩历险记》、《汤姆·索亚历险记》和《王子与贫儿》。)



Lana - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 6:27 am 
Um wheres Enid Blyton?? I read today in excessive amounts because of that woman!!

伊妮·布莱顿在哪?读太多只因为这女人!!



Chris Vitiello - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 7:41 am 
I wish John Bellairs was more popular. I loved his books as a kid and now my kids love his books. So gothic and creepy and wonderful.

希望约翰·贝拉斯更受欢迎些,我的孩子和我小时都爱读他的书,那么惊人的哥特式的恐怖。

(译注:约翰·贝拉斯擅长写作奇幻和悬疑小说,成名作是《冷面》。)



Malene Hald (@malenehald) - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 8:12 am 
Who is Lois Lowery? Never heard of her! And where is Astrid Lindgren with Pippi Lonckstocking, Emil of Lonneberga, Karlsson on the Roof, The Borthers Lionheart and Ronja the Robbers Daughter? Shouldn’t you have a wider bibliography to show from?

谁是洛伊丝·劳里?从没听说过!写《长袜子皮皮》、《淘气包埃米尔》、《小飞人卡尔松》、《狮心兄弟》和《绿林女儿》的阿斯特里德·林格伦在哪儿?参考书目不应该再多点么?

(译注:《狮心兄弟》曾被瑞典改编为电影《梦幻世界》)



Luce - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 8:29 am 
Dr Seuss!????????

苏斯博士呢!????????

(译注:苏斯博士被奉为美国偶像,其作品被美国教育部指定为重要阅读辅导读物,他的生日被定为全美诵读日。他最知名的作品是《戴帽子的猫》,改编作品是《圣诞怪杰》。)



donna - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 8:41 am 
Yes, but, where is Susan Cooper and The Dark is Rising series? Surely should be on this list!

苏珊·库珀和她的《黑暗崛起》系列在哪呢?绝对应该上榜的!

(译注:苏珊·库珀的《黑暗崛起》曾被改编成一部坑爹的电影。她的丈夫Hume Cronyn曾多次为希区柯克编剧并在电影埃及艳后中饰演被屋大维当街刺死的索西琴尼,现在公历的前身儒略历就是恺撒邀请埃及天文学家索西琴尼到罗马帮助修订的。)



donna - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 8:44 am 
Whoops! and Roald Dahl and John Bellairs and Daniel Pinkwater…? OK, so this is a hard list to make. Perhaps you should have gone with fifteen…

罗尔德·达尔、约翰·贝拉斯和丹尼·皮克沃特呢?榜单挺难选的,可能应该选15个人出来…

(译注:丹尼·皮克沃特的《橘色奇迹》广泛用于美国小学教科书中)



cat - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 9:36 am 
Roald Dahl. Obviously.

显然应该有罗尔德·达尔。



eden - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 10:20 am 
No love for Louisa May Alcott or L. M. Montgomery? Jo March and Anne of Green Gables are the best heroines a little girl (or boy!) could ever have!


没人喜欢路易莎·梅·奥尔科特或露西·莫德·蒙哥马利么?乔马齐和红发安妮永远是小女孩(或男孩子)心目中的最佳女主角。

(译注:乔马齐是路易莎·梅·奥尔科特名作《小妇人》女主角,安妮是露西·莫德·蒙哥马利名作《绿山墙的安妮》女主角,《绿》后被改编为电影、动画片《安妮的故事》)



Sarah - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 10:25 am 
Yeah srsly, no Roald Dahl!? What about Maurice Sendak??

认真地说,没有罗尔德·达尔!? 莫里斯·桑达克如何??

(译注:莫里斯·桑达克最知名作品是《野兽出没的地方》和《天才宝贝熊》。)



Rebecca - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 10:49 am 
Some great choices here but I think you are missing Louis Sachar – Sideways Stories from Wayside School and Theres a Boy in the Girls Bathroom were my absolute favorite books / series when I was a kid.

有很多作家可选,但我想你漏了路易斯·查尔,《歪歪小学的荒诞故事》和《女生厕所里有个男生》等系列曾是我小时的最爱。



Jenna - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 11:09 am 
I strongly second Susan Cooper and the Dark is Rising series. So so so good and original. I read this series at least 5 times growing up.

我再次强烈推苏珊·库珀和《黑暗崛起》系列, 又棒又新颖,我小时至少读了5遍。



barbara - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 11:23 am 
How can you forget about Astrid Lindgren, Roald Dahl and E.B.White

怎么能把阿斯特里德·林格伦、 罗尔德·达尔和E·B·怀特忘了?



Michele - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 12:25 pm 
Jacqueline Woodson should be on the list.

杰奎琳·武森应该上榜。



Carol - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 1:40 pm 
So many good authors for children! My favorite is Natalie Babbitt. Tuck Everlasting is a classic. Also Louise Fitzhugh.

这么多优秀的儿童文学作家!我偏爱娜塔丽·巴比特,《真爱无尽》是部经典, 还有路易丝·费兹修。

(译注:娜塔丽·巴比特的《尼瑙克山探险》曾获纽银奖)
(译注:路易丝·费兹修最知名作品是《小间谍哈瑞特》)



Kathleen - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 1:51 pm 
Louise Fitzhugh should be included for Harriet the Spy and The Long Secret, as should L.M Montgomery for the Anne of Green Gables series. And where is Enid Blyton? Kenneth Grahame?

路易丝·费兹修应为《小间谍哈瑞特》和《长久的秘密》上榜,还有写《绿山墙的安妮》的露西·莫德·蒙哥马利也是,伊妮·布莱顿和肯尼斯·格雷厄姆在哪儿?



David - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 2:00 pm 
Not only can I not believe you left out L. Frank Baum (only the greatest children’s author ever), I can’t believe none of the other comments has suggested him. Frankie was awesome; don’t let him be forgotten!

我不但不相信你漏掉莱曼·弗兰克·鲍姆(永远是最伟大的儿童文学家),还难以相信没有一个评论推他。弗兰克棒极了,不能把他忘了!

(译注:莱曼·弗兰克·鲍姆最知名作品为《绿野仙踪》)



JC - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 2:04 pm 
Yes, to Andersen, Dahl, Milne and Sendak of those your list does lack.
But the hippest cat that I would choose, My most favorite doctor, Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss)

是的,榜上没有安徒生、达尔、米尔恩和桑达克,但我会选那只最潮的猫,苏斯博士上榜。

(译注:苏斯博士曾作《戴帽子的猫》)



Albert Day - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 2:51 pm 
what about L. Frank Baum!!!! (Wizard of Oz)….

写《绿野仙踪》的莱曼·弗兰克·鲍姆怎么样!!!! 



Patrick Moore - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 3:00 pm 
World creators William Joyce and the Ursula K. Le Guin (for her Children’s series)…

提名威廉·乔西和娥苏拉·勒瑰恩(为她的儿童系列作品)

(译注:威廉·乔西是作家兼插画家,举办过The world of William Joyce巡回展览。他参与过《玩具总动员》的设计,制作过《机器人历险记》。) 
(译注:娥苏拉·勒瑰恩的成名作是科幻小说《黑暗的左手》,儿童文学作品为《地海四部曲》,地海后被吉卜力改编为动画电影《地海战记》。娥苏拉的父亲喜爱《道德经》对她的写作有一定的影响。)



JB - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 3:32 pm 
It is intensely satisfying that so many people have called for Roald Dahl’s inclusion, and equally satisfying that not a one has mentioned Suzanne Collins. I’d like to see Diana Wynne Jones on a list like this, and maybe William Steig, but there’s only so much room, and Pullman is the only author on it I could bring myself to argue about.

很满意这么多人提罗尔德·达尔,也很满意没人提苏珊·科林斯。我希望戴安娜·万尼·琼斯上榜,也许还有威廉·史塔克,但只能有10人上榜,普曼是榜上我感觉唯一有争议的作家。

(译注:戴安娜·万尼·琼斯最知名作品是《奎师塔门西的众世界》系列、《道尔马克四重奏》系列和《霍尔的移动城堡》系列,吉卜力曾将后者改编为动画电影。)
(译注:威廉·史塔克在中国最知名的作品是《怪物史莱克》)
(译注:苏珊·科林斯名作是科幻三部曲《饥饿游戏》,后被改编为同名电影)



Kristel - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 3:38 pm 
I would have added Beverly Cleary to this list.

要是我会加上贝芙莉·克莱瑞。

(译注:贝芙莉·克莱瑞最知名作品是《雷梦拉》系列)



Q. Porter - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 3:44 pm 
Oh, what a challenging list to make! So many great authors. I read voraciously as a child and Enid Blyton was my favorite. I would also add Dahl to the list. I can see why Dr. Seuss is left off, since I would guess Seuss books are targeted to a slightly younger demographic. Thanks for this; it is fun to see what others have suggested…I will look into several of those suggested to read to my young nieces!

真是个难选的榜单!好作家有这么多。我小时读书如饥似渴,那时最爱伊妮·布莱顿,我也会推达尔上榜。我知道苏斯博士为什么落榜,我猜是因为他的读者群都是小小朋友的缘故。感谢这个榜单,看其它人的推荐挺有意思的,我会翻翻这些推荐书买给我的小侄女!



Gaby - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 4:43 pm 
I would have dropped JK Rowling for some of the classics mentioned above – sure, she’s been a craze for the past decade, but I don’t know if she has the continued staying power of the others on the list. As for other additions, Tamora Pierce and Diana Wynn Jones would be some good ones. I think a second list is in order.

我不会把J·K·罗琳算到以上经典作家中,当然她在过去10年风靡一时,但我不知道她是否和榜单上其它人一样有持久力。塔莫拉·皮尔斯和戴安娜·万尼·琼斯是补充的好人选。我想再列份榜单会比较合适。 

(译注:塔莫拉·皮尔斯最受欢迎小说是《阿莱娜:第一次冒险》,她似乎对女权主义题材特别感兴趣。)



fringearte - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 5:24 pm 
E.B. White of course, of course – for creating not just one popular series but several wholly imagined books and their worlds of characters – Stuart Little, Charlotte’s Web, Trumpet of the Swan – since you have mentioned several authors who have withstood the test of time, I think there should be two categories one contemporary/poplular, and another to make room for those who are proven undoubtedly timeless.

当然应该有E·B·怀特,他创造了不止一个畅销系列,还创作了很多完全虚构的作品和文中人物的世界——如《精灵鼠小弟》、《夏洛特的网》、《吹小号的天鹅》,既然你们提到很多经受住时间考验的作家,我想榜单就应该分成两部分,一部分是当代/流行作家,另一部分留给真正能留芳百世的作家。



Laura - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 5:24 pm 
I’d have to agree with most people and say where is Roald Dahl and Enid Blyton?? It is because of these two writers that I began my love of literature and haven’t looked back since. I still enjoy grabbing one of their books and diving into it every now and again.

我必须同意大多数人的意见,罗尔德·达尔和伊妮·布莱顿在哪儿?? 就因为这两个人我义无反顾地爱上文学,有时我还是喜欢抓本他们的书一头扎进去。



Susan SC - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 5:41 pm 
Where’s JRR Tolkien? I agree about Christopher Paul Curtis and many others that could have been included.

J·R·R·托尔金在哪儿? 我觉得克里斯托弗·保罗·柯蒂斯和其它作家本应上榜的。

(译注:J·R·R·托尔金在中国最知名作品是魔戒(指环王)系列,后被改编为电影。)



Tom Parrett - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 5:57 pm
Arthur Ransome is a terrible omission. The Swallows and Amazons series, because it involves boats, is timeless. The rural Lake District world Ransome uses, unlike many on this list, is no adult-spun fantasy—it resembles ours.
And Robert Louis Stevenson? Hard to beat Kidnapped or Treasure Island or Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for drama.
I read a lot of Dickens before I was 12. Many of his characters are children or young adults (Great Expectations, David Copperfield, Oliver Twist). 
Compared to these three, all but a few on the list seem about as richly imagined and well-written as video games.

遗漏了亚瑟·兰塞姆糟透了。有关航行的《燕子和鹦鹉》系列永远是经典。与榜上多数作品不同,兰塞姆写的湖区田园风光(英格兰西北部风景地)不是大人编造的空想,它就是我们自己的梦想。
罗伯特·路易斯·史蒂文森如何?《绑架》、《金银岛》和戏剧文学《化身博士》很难逾越。
12岁前我读了很多狄更斯的书,书中很多人物是儿童或少年(《远大前程》、《大卫·科波菲尔》、《雾都孤儿》)。
与这三位相比,所有上榜作家中只有少数人的创作想像丰富而精彩,就像电子游戏一样。



Torry - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 6:33 pm 
The Giver really stuck with me as a child . . . but we know what happened to Jonas if you read the rest of the series.

我小时真的对《记忆传授人》念念不忘,但如果你读了后续系列就知道Jonas怎么样了。



Kris - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 7:10 pm 
This list is not complete without Rosemary Sutcliff!

没有罗斯玛丽·苏特克里夫的榜单就不是好榜单!

(译注:罗斯玛丽·苏特克里夫最受欢迎的是她历史题材的小说《第九鹰团/失落的第九军团》)



Karen Kane - Wednesday Mar 21, 2012 at 10:53 pm 
One of the greatest children’s authors of all time, Astrid Lindgren, is known for writing many wonderful books, not just one or two.

有史以来最佳儿童文学家之一是阿斯特里德·林格伦,写出了不止一两部的众多佳作。



Jane - Thursday Mar 22, 2012 at 8:54 am
at the risk of sounding repetitive – ROALD DAHL!!

冒险啰嗦下,应该有罗尔德·达尔!!



Thom - Thursday Mar 22, 2012 at 10:56 am 
Beverly Cleary. L. Frank Baum.

提名贝芙莉·克莱瑞和莱曼·弗兰克·鲍姆。



Kate Koenig - Thursday Mar 22, 2012 at 10:58 am 
Brian Jacques! Brian Jacques! Brian Jacques!! What would I have done as a middle schooler without being able to absorb all those weird assorted animal speech patterns? Burr aye.

布赖恩·雅克呀!!如果我是个无法理解各种动物古怪对话的中学生该怎么办呢?真是的。

(译注:布赖恩·雅克被誉为当代安徒生,其知名作品为《红城王国》系列。)
(译注:Burr aye取自《红城王国》中鼹鼠的口音及用语)



Carol - Thursday Mar 22, 2012 at 3:35 pm 
The problem with lists like this is that educators, librarians, and critics are far more fond of these books than children! As a former fourth grade teacher (and mother of two grown children), I can assure you that these books were usually read only when required by the curriculum. Was a rare child who eagerly plucked them off a book shelf for their reading pleasure!

此类榜单的问题在于教育家、图书馆员和评论家们比孩子们更喜欢这些书!作为一个前四年级的老师和两个孩子母亲,我敢担保这些书只在课程要求时才会被读,很少有孩子为读书乐趣才急着把它们从书架上拿下来!



Reda Rountree - Thursday Mar 22, 2012 at 4:47 pm 
A wonderful list, for sure, but you left off the most gifted children’s writer of the last century, J.M. Barrie. No children’s author has encompassed a kid’s wonderment and excitement and experience the way he did in “Peter Pan.” And no other author has done so much to help children with the writing of one book, leaving it to the Children’s Hospital in London. What an amazing man.

很棒的榜单,但你漏了上世纪最有才华的儿童文学家詹姆斯·巴里。没谁像他的《彼得潘》那样让孩子体验惊奇刺激。也没谁像他那样的帮助孩子,写了本书将版权留给伦敦的儿童医院,多了不起的一个人。

(译注:作为伦敦大奥蒙德街儿童医院的主要捐助人之一的詹姆斯·巴里在遗嘱中将《彼得潘》的版权无偿转让给了医院)



Ellen Mager - Thursday Mar 22, 2012 at 7:11 pm 
I agree that I wished that Natalie Babbit was included in the list, perhaps instead of Philip Pullman and also Frances Hodgson Burnett or Louisa May Alcott instead of Lewis Carroll….. All and all it was a surprisingly good list…

我同意并希望娜塔丽·巴比特上榜将菲力普·普曼替下,并用弗朗西丝·霍奇森·伯内特或路易莎·梅·奥尔科特代替刘易斯·卡罗尔,总之要这样就是个出奇棒的榜单了。

(译注:著名英语儿童文学作家弗朗西丝·霍奇森·伯内特代表作是《小公主》和《秘密花园》,都曾被改编为电影和动画片。)



Karen Ann Gagnon - Thursday Mar 22, 2012 at 8:29 pm 
Good list of authors ~ Couldn’t believe you left out Roald Dahl, among some others that I think should have been included:
~ Jean Craighead George: My Side of the Mountin & Julie of the Wolves Series
~ Beverly Cleary: Ramona and Ralph S. Mouse
~ E.B. White: Stuart Little, Charlotte’s Web and The Trumpet of the Swan
~ Gary Paulson: Hatchet and Francis Tucket
~ Astrid Lindren: Pippi Longstocking
~ P.L. Travers: Mary Poppins
~ Beatrix Potter: Peter Rabbit & friends
~ Brian Jacques: The Redwall Series 
These were some of my favorite authors growing up and still are.

不错的作家榜,不能相信没有罗尔德·达尔,我认为还应包括:
写《山居岁月》和《狼女茱莉》的珍·克雷赫德·乔治
写《雷梦拉和小老鼠拉尔夫》的贝芙莉·克莱瑞
写《精灵鼠小弟》、《夏洛特的网》、《吹小号的天鹅》的E·B·怀特
写《手斧男孩》和《叫我弗朗西斯塔吉特》的 加里·波森
写《长袜子皮皮》的阿斯特里德·林格伦
写《仙女褓母》的帕·林·特拉弗斯
写《彼得兔的世界》的比阿特丽克斯·波特
写《红城王国》系列的布赖恩·雅克
这些都是我小时喜欢现在仍喜欢的作家。

(译注:《仙女褓母》曾改编为电影《欢乐满人间》,初登银幕的朱莉安德鲁斯凭借此片击败了奥黛丽赫本获得第37届奥斯卡最佳女主角奖。)



vbj - Thursday Mar 22, 2012 at 8:56 pm 
Why stop at 10? Katherine Paterson was also the National Ambassador of Young People’s Literature.

为什么只写10人?凯瑟琳·帕特森也是我国少儿文学的代表。



Karen Ann Gagnon - Thursday Mar 22, 2012 at 9:42 pm

(译注:《波德一家》曾被吉卜力改编为动画电影《借物少女艾莉缇》)



Sue - Friday Mar 23, 2012 at 9:32 am 
So glad you included Madeleine L’Engle—my favorite author. So many books to love—lots of “stand-alones” as well as the Meg Murry (A Wrinkle in Time, etc.) books and the Vicky Austin books (especially A Ring of Endless Light). Lots of strong female characters, wonderful plots and memorable book titles!

很高兴你选了我最爱的马德琳·英格上榜,有这么多好看的书,很多书与写Meg Murry(《时间的皱纹》中角色)和Vicky Austin(《无尽的铃》中角色)的书一样独具一格,有这么多坚强的女性角色、精彩的故事情节和难忘的书名! 



Karen Ann Gagnon - Friday Mar 23, 2012 at 10:48 am

Claudia - Friday Mar 23, 2012 at 10:59 am 
Had to read down, down, down the list to thank David for L. Frank Baum, on more for fringeart’s E.B. White, on and on for Susan’s JRR Tolkien, thanks to Reda for J.M. Barrie and to Karen for (hooray) T.H. White, but am I the only one to have read and re-read Thornton W. Burgess? Sitting at the library, reading all of the “West Wind” and “When” stories was such a fond memory that I searched out a copy for my own.

必须往下读呀读呀,谢谢David提到莱曼·弗兰克·鲍姆、fringearte提到E·B·怀特、Susan提到JRR 托尔金、Reda提到詹姆斯·巴里、Karen提到T·H·怀特(喝彩),可只有我一人读过并且再读桑顿·柏基斯么?坐在图书馆里读全套的“西风母亲”和“那时”系列故事是多么美好的回忆,我找了他的一套书自己留着看。



Fiona - Friday Mar 23, 2012 at 11:48 am
Carol, I guess I was that rare child. I read all these books voluntarily, and I’m guessing I’m not alone, judging by all the comments here.
The Chronicles of Narnia were life-changing for me (not so much Phillip Pullman, although he is a great writer and you were right to include him). Obviously, this is a short list, but I agree Roald Dahl, LM Montgomery (also life-changing for me), Astrid Lindgren and Enid Blyton needed to be included. Louisa Mae Alcott and Beverly Cleary and whoever wrote Ramona the Spy were all highly influential, too. 
And I love Suzanne Collins (to address the comment above) and I think she is an excellent writer, but she’s not Top 10. That’s a very tough list to make.

楼上的Carol,我想我就是那少数孩子。我是自愿读的这些书,从这些评论看我也不是一个人。
读《纳尼亚传奇》对我是命运转折(菲力普·普曼就没那么大影响力,尽管他是不错,你选他是对的)。显然这榜单太短,我提名罗尔德·达尔和露西·莫德·蒙哥马利(她也改变了我),阿斯特里德·林格伦和伊妮·布莱顿也应入选,路易莎·梅·奥尔科特、贝芙莉·克莱瑞和写雷梦拉是个间谍的歌也颇有影响力。
我也爱苏珊·科林斯(回应楼上的评论),我觉得她很棒但还不能进前10位,这榜其实很难选。

(译注:贝芙莉·克莱瑞曾写Ramona雷梦拉系列,美国第一支朋克乐队就以Ramonas命名,其专辑《Rocket to Russia》还收录了一首名为Ramona的歌,歌词为Sweet sweet little Ramona,I think I'll try and phone her I let her in if you're wondering why Cause she's a spy for the BBI。该专辑于1977年发行,反映了当时冷战美苏争霸下部分美国人的心态,这歌虽然不知所云但显然被记住了。)



Caroline Hughes - Friday Mar 23, 2012 at 2:24 pm 
I was sad not to see Beverly Cleary on the list.

贝芙莉·克莱瑞没上榜我很难过。



Margaret - Friday Mar 23, 2012 at 7:09 pm 
It’s very difficult to choose just ten authors as the very best, but I encourage all of you pushing for authors like Astrid Lindgren and Dr. Seuss to go back and re-read the opening bit of this article. The selected authors had to have written books in English for the 9-12 age set. I agree that many more authors deserve to be named as “the best”, but I commend this article for taking a shot at the top 10.

很难选谁是最佳前10作家,但我劝推阿斯特里德·林格伦和苏斯博士的人回去再读读文章开头写的,被选对象必须是为9-12岁年龄段写作的英文作家。我认同有许多其它作家同样能被称为“最佳”,但我还是要称赞这篇推出前10榜单的文章。



Antoinette - Saturday Mar 24, 2012 at 3:46 pm 
Just when I was feeling sad about some of the missing authors on your list, I read the comments and everyone began to mentioned them. I was bummed about Roald Dahl, too. I’m wondering if you limited your list to the authors of chapter books, and not picture books. Lastly, there was no mention of any authors of color. Why not?

虽然对有些作家没上榜感到难过,但评论里每个人都开始提到他们了,罗尔德·达尔没上榜我也很郁闷。我在奇怪作者是否只选故事书作家而不选图画故事书作家上榜,最后,都没人提过插画作家,为什么没人提?



Karen Ann Gagnon - Saturday Mar 24, 2012 at 11:51 pm
Going through my old books tonight, I found some more gems that I loved when I was younger:
~ Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm by Kate Douglas Wiggin
~ Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian
~ Babe the Gallant Pig by Dick-King Smith (and The Water Horse)
~ Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
~ Lassie Come Home by Eric Knight
~ Mrs. Frisby & The Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien
The authors that wrote these books wrote wonderful stories that transported the reader into another time and place ~
I know for me with my bad legs (and when I was young a stuttering problem) reading these timeless books helped ease the loneliness of my childhood ~

今晚我翻了翻以前看过的书,发现了小时喜欢的几篇杰作:
凯特·道格拉斯·维珍写的《太阳溪农场的吕贝卡》
米歇尔·麦格里安写的《晚安汤姆》
狄克·金-史密斯写的《小猪宝贝》和《尼斯湖水怪》
威尔逊·罗尔斯写的《红色羊齿草的故乡》
艾里克·耐特写的《灵犬莱西》
罗伯特·奥布赖恩写的《费里斯比夫人和尼姆老鼠》
写这些作品的作家创作的精彩故事带领读者穿梭到了另外一个时空~
对于双腿不灵便(小时还口吃)的我,读这些不朽之作缓解了我童年的孤独~

(译注:《灵犬莱西》改编的同名电影是玉婆伊丽莎白泰勒11岁时的作品)



Debbie Stephens - Tuesday Mar 27, 2012 at 9:26 pm 
Margaret peterson haddix???

玛格丽特·彼得森·哈迪克丝呢???

(译注:玛格丽特·彼得森·哈迪克丝最知名作品是“失踪”系列和“影子儿童”系列丛书。)



Katie 
What about Gail Carson Levine? She wrote Neverland Fairies books (yes, like Tinker Bell and her friends), Dave At Night, and Ella Enchanted!

盖尔·卡森·列文如何?她写了《梦幻仙子》系列(是的,像詹姆斯·巴里的《彼得潘》里叮当小仙女和她的朋友们那样的人物)、《夜晚的戴夫》和《魔法灰姑娘》!



Amy Leigh Strickland 
I miss Neil Gaiman from this list.

榜单上没有尼尔·盖曼。

(译注:尼尔·盖曼名作是漫画《睡魔》、小说《星尘》、《美国众神》)



Vinh Nguyen 
I like all of them but Philip Pullman Dark Materials books were epic until someone decided to make a movie. And the outcome was rubbish. Also get rid of C.S.Lewis(read his books but dunno why they're so special) and put in Roald Dahl.

这些作家我都喜欢,除了菲力普·普曼,他的《黑暗元素》是史诗般的作品,直到有人决定把它拍成电影,那部电影就是垃圾。也要除去C·S·刘易斯(读过他的书但不懂哪里好)换上罗尔德·达尔。



Cosmo 
For shame. How can you miss A. A. Milne, J. M. Barrie, Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Roald Dahl, Dr. Seuss, Astrid Lindgren, and Maurice Sendak?

可耻,怎么能没有A. A.米尔恩、詹姆斯·巴里、安东尼·圣埃克苏佩里、罗尔德·达尔、苏斯博士、阿斯特里德·林格伦和莫里斯·桑达克?

(译注:安东尼·圣埃克苏佩里的名作是《小王子》)
