24 Festive Tasks: Door 15 - St. Nicholas' Day / Sinterklaas, Task 4 (Books Featuring Children Rescued from Peril)
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - Mark Twain,Guy Cardwell,John Seelye
The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Black Stallion - Walter Farley,Keith Ward
M - Jon J. Muth

I suppose Harry Potter and just about every children's / YA fantasy (or mystery) series would fill this bill, but big HP and Three Investigators fan though I am, let me offer these for consideration instead:

 

1.  Mark Twain: The Adventure of Tom Sawyer -- Tom and Becky Thatcher in McDougal's Cave (rescued thanks to Tom's tenacious search for an exit), and Tom and Huck Finn up against Injun Joe; inter alia, listening to Joe's and his cohorts' plans at the peril of their own death in case they are discovered, and Tom incurring the same risk by speaking up at Injun Joe's trial (after which Joe escapes through a window).

 

2.  Frances Hodgson Burnett: The Secret Garden -- At the beginning of the book, Mary is sent to England to stay with her uncle to save her from the cholera epidemic that will shortly thereafter kill both of her parents, who have remained in India.

 

3.  Walter Farley: The Black Stallion -- Alec and "The Black" become friends when they help each other to survive on a desert island after being shipwrecked.

 

Honorable mention:

 

"M" (screenplay, not book): A chillingly creepy 1930s movie,  concerning the hunt for a pedophile serial killer -- starring Peter Lorre (pre-Hollywood) as the pedophile and directed by Fritz Lang.

There Was an Old Mummy Who Swallowed a Spider - Jennifer Ward,Steve Gray
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

Cute Halloween-themed revamp of "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly". Very cute illustrations. I liked the style. I also liked the amount of detail in the illustrations. There are some rather silly rhymes on the tombstones in the cemetery. Nice balance of a little scary, but not too scary. Definitely more cute than scary. 

I will say that I tend to prefer Lucille Colandro's style a little more, because the things/animals the person swallows usually come up with no ill effects. I love the silliness of the story, but also like knowing that the things/animals swallowed aren't actually hurt. The ending of this book wasn't quite as clear cut and made me a little uneasy. I can easily see my childhood mind not being able to let go of wondering whether the witch was okay or not. 

Overall, good read with nice illustrations.
