I am doing a list of kids' books as well. No commentary, just cause I don't think people care nearly as much about my favorite kids' books.

A Tale of Time City by Diana Wynne Jones
Roxaboxen by Alice Mclerran
No Jumping on the Bed by Tedd Arnold
Teddy Bear Christmas (Not the real title but I can't remember the actual title - it's about a father bear, daughter bear, and son bear who are trying to find a Christmas gift for their mom. They can't find anything so they get themselves wrapped up and ship themselves to their mom in a package in the mail! Surreal)
Big Dog, Little Dog by PD Eastman
We All Fall Down by Robert Cormier
I Am the Cheese by Robert Cormier
The Final Battle by CS Lewis
My Teacher Flunked the Planet by Bruce Coville
The Night Room by EM Goldman
The Marvelous Land of Oz by L. Frank Baum
Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish
Love You Forever (a classic) by Robert Munsch
Corduroy by Dan Freeman
Caps for Sale: A Tale of a Peddler, Some Monkeys and Their Monkey Business by Esphyr Slobodkina

I know I have two Cormier books listed. I wanted to list a dark fantasy/horror book, but honestly I can't remember the title or the author. And also Cormier did blow my mind when I was a kid.

Couple of runner-ups:
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankenweiler by EL Koningsburg
The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
Anything by Katherine Paterson

I LOVED Amelia Bedalia! Also my faves were the PeeWee Scouts Halloween book, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, Little Witch, Babysitters Club, The Giver, Island of the Blue Dolphins, Blue Heron, Little Women, Anne of Green Gables series, Jeff Moss and Shel Silverstein books, The Devil's Arithmetic, Number the Stars, and so many more. I still like to re-read those faves of my past just to keep me young. Plus to this day they are still some of the BEST books ever. :)

Oh man, I used to love Bruce Coville. The "Teacher" books are amazing.
