58. The Weathermonger by Peter Dickinson (book 3 of the Changes trilogy)
The first half of The Weathermonger has a similar trajectory as the first two books in the series, an adventurous journey with children in charge. It's the second half, when they meet the weathermonger and start to unravel his mystery, that takes this book to a higher plane. It's fantastical and really enjoyable. Very cool stuff and I can see now why as a kid I snuck and read ahead to find out what happened. The whole series is great, but I think the Weathermonger really stands alone as well. If you only want to read one of them, this is the one.
