The Book That Changed My Life

May/June 2018 Horn Book MagazineFor the May/June 2018 Horn Book Magazine: Special Issue: Making a Difference (gorgeous cover at right by Yuyi Morales), we asked fifteen-plus children’s book creators to write about the book that changed their lives. The answers were heartfelt, touching, sometimes humorous, always thoughtful — and a welcome reminder about the enduring power of books and reading.

Throughout the month, we’ll be featuring “The Book That Changed My Life” articles on and on social media: | @HornBook | We hope they spark discussion and reflection.

Eugene Yelchin begins the series with “A Dangerous Book.” What book changed your life?
