Books for Young Adults

Hilda van Stockum's books for children and young adults were originally published during what has been called a "golden age" of children's literature. They were widely and favorably reviewed, and were also favorites among librarians because they celebrated family life and dealt with issues of good and evil - and because librarians noticed that the books held the attention of children.  Her books for young adults include one of her best known titles, The Winged Watchman.
