OK, so Zap's post about books that we loved as kids and still hold upgot me thinking about the books I loved as a kid and would love to re-read. There's one that I remember loving with the fire of a thousand suns, but can't remember the title or author. So, if anyone recognizes it, please give me a hint!
It was a fantasy novel (well, who are you talking to? that's a no-brainer) involving a quest (duh) to find a talisman. It turns out that the talisman is actually a girl named Talisman (which I thought was the most awesome name EVER for years). There are dragons — air dragons who fly, and earth dragons who swim through the earth.
That's really about all I can remember. Please tell me I didn't imagine it! (Which is entirely possible, really)
