Blue Balliett's Favorite Books

Here are some stories that this author adores.

The BFG by Roald Dahl
I’ve read all of his books, but this is my absolute favorite. It’s wild and funny and touching.

Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson
I have loved this book forever. I think I’d like to do what Harold does in the story.

The Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg
I read this when it came out, and adored it. I still adore it.

Stonewords: A Ghost Story by Pam Conrad
I love ghost stories, and this is a really scary one.

Stuart Little by E. B. White
This is a book that changes the way you look at the everyday world – little things become very big. And it is beautifully written.
