Books You Loved When You Were 10

Setting: United States, 1950-1990--the earlier, the better

Pretty much what it says on the tin: What were you reading, the year you turned 10?

Which books did you love--and which were your least favorites? (Bonus points if the book was given to you as a 10th birthday present.) And which do you love to this day?

Which books for much younger readers did you continue reading--furtively or not!--when you were 10 and supposedly "too old" for them?

Searches tried: books for 10 year olds; best books for 10 year olds. I find these are heavily oriented toward the very latest releases, whereas I'm interested in a retrospective of the books that stay in people's affections for a long time.
