fresh snow on bare branches is just another tragically beautiful reminder that I can't draw trees, and I wish I could.

High Fantasy: Lloyd Alexander's series, I forget the name of the first book, but it includes The Black Cauldron, and Taran Wanderer and The High King...but I can't remember the first book which is probably what you want to read :)They are very High Fantasy, though, with the classical unlikely hero and good v. evil, coming of age story. I think The Hobbit would also fit. Of course, Chronicles of Narnia is High Fantasy, good v. evil and all that.
As for Children with Challenges...does that mean with disabilites, or any old challenge? Would Freak the Mighty work? I've never actually read it, but I've heard about it. Or does Real-Life mean non-fiction, not just non-fantasy/historical/sci-fi?
Touchstone: Tom Sawyer, Little Women, The Hobbit
