I watched The Seeker: The Dark is Rising the other night. It was okay, but my memory kept telling me that the book was WAY better.
So, tonight, I'm gonna pick up The Dark is Rising by Susan Cooper from my library. Can't wait!
I remember really enjoying this series when I was younger, and I think this will by my 3rd or 4th time reading this particular book.
A few other childhood favorites are:
Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn
Blade of the Poisoner and Master of Fiends by Douglas Arthur Hill
The Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
