Can You Pick or Choose? - Of Great Writings For Children

Because we have been living at the end of one century and at the beginning of a new century the past few years, you have surely seen this question: Who Was/Is the Greatest Writer of the 20th Century?

As writers for children, we might consider a similar question in this way: Who Were/Are Ten Great Children's Writers, Not Just of the 20th Century, But From Anytime Starting From the Beginning of Children's Literature to the Present?

Here are a few suggestions: Louisa May Alcott, Mark Twain, Frances Hodgson Burnett, Madeleine L'Engle, and J.K. Rowling. 

Can you think of others?

Tell why you think they may be among the "TOP TEN."
