Well, I ALWAYS used to read Roald Dahl stories and Dr Seuss! I wonder if they're lurking in my attic somewhere...?

I always wanted to read the Alice in Wonderland books, but so far I've only read the first one.

haha, Rhode Dahl was amazing. There were allways such messed up creepy things in his books. I used the love "The Witches", and then I ended up thinking all adult women were witches. But yeah... that and "Matilda" were probably my favorites.

I loved everything Enid Blyton I could get my hands on--Famous Five, Secret Seven, The Magic Faraway Tree, the Wishing Chair, etc! Blyton is a legend!

Also liked:
The Very Hungry Caterpillar (one of the best kids' books ever)
The Giant Jam Sandwich (every child's dream!)
A book about a sick cow (don't remember the title)
The Nancy Drew series
Miz Wizz books (seriously awesome)
The Mr. Men books
I Want To See The Moon
Bel Mooney's 'Kitty' books

There are probably a load more I've forgotten--but still have, hidden away in boxes!

Does anyone else remember the (I think) BBC production of Narnia that featured drawn special effects and looked a little like a school play?
I always loved the Tolkein as a kid. I got read the Hobbit at age five, which spurred me onto LOTR at seven. Oh, and of course, the Sophie books.

Did anyone ever finish the narnia series?
It has the most depressing ending to a childrens book ever.

I was obsessed with Mr. Wolf's Pancakes. I had to read it every night before bed or I couldn't sleep. This carried on for about three years, then I think I realised that there was something wrong with me and read The Famous Five instead.

I used to love on book (although it terrified me lol)
It was about a princess who was told never to go into the forest. So one day she did and she met this handsom scottish knight and then she was swept away into dancing with fairies but he saved her. Then she spend years pining for him before escaping, tricking the faury queen and rescuing her knight. Loved it!

When I was really really little I loved Sheep in a Jeep. I can still remember: Sheep in a jeep on a hill thats steep. Uh oh the jeep won't go. Sheep leap to push the jeep... lol

Yes, I finished it. What was with that ending?
Spoiler

I loved those books though. I was in a play of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe once. I was Lucy. 

I also used to read a lot of Enid Blyton. Famous Five, Secret Seven, Malory Towers, The Magic Faraway Tree...the lot! I was also a big Roald Dahl fan.

Winnie the Pooh and the House at Pooh Corner was the first "real" book I've ever read. I still love it, tiddly-pom.

I also loved Pippi Longstocking, all Roald Dahl books and The Hobbit. And Can't you sleep, Little Bear?

Good old times. :)

^^The tiddly-pom made me smile :)

My mum brought home a load of books from my childhood at the end of term because she's not going to be a classroom teacher next year. It was amazing! I went through them all and forgot so many gorgeous books.
Does anyone remember funnbones books? They were a skeleton dad, son and dog and they had adventures.

And the blue balloon. Our version is missing most of the fold out balloon though...we destroyed books that we loved by reading them too much.

Basically anything by Roald Dahl, Anne Fine or Paul Jennings. I also loved the Malory Towers books, though I only ever read the first three.

There was also this book series called Stacy and Friends that I really loved, and I had all 18 books. Does anyone remember it at all? I think they're out of print nowadays though :(

Thank God somebody else said Jaqueline Wilson or I was going to feel really stupid and unintellectual.
But yeah I really loved them and probs would read them again however bad it sounds.

I always love 'The Illustrated Mum' the best out of all the books. I thought Dolphin was really cool and I liked the mum. It only struck me the other day that she was bi-polar as I'd never really picked up on it as a child.

I loved girls in love as well.

Read the famous five when I was quite a bit younger.

Omg - I remember loving 'The dolphin diaries'. Forgot about that, it brings back memories.

Yay, I'm happy now cos I have to admit I still do love some of her books. In year 7 and 8 I read Girls In Love countless amounts of times. I'm sad I'm like 2 years older the characters now I always really loved them :) They made me happy and I can relate to all of them tbh.

I loved Girls In Love! And the TV show (it's on youtube...the girl who plays Ellie is actually gorgeous.) And Tracy Beaker, and The Suitcase Kid when my parents got divorced...
When I was really little I liked "I Love You, Blue Kangaroo." It's terribly sad, I used to cry.

I loved Roald Dahl. I borrowed an anthology of his stories from our school library when I was six, and kept them hostage, on and off again, for about four years. My librarian would make me return it every month, just for a week, and if nobody else borrowed it, they were mine for another month.

I also liked the Ramona books by Beverley Cleary (I think that's her name).

Oh, and this fabulous big encyclopedia type thing called 'The Great Big Book Of Knowledge' that my parents gave me for Christmas when I was five. I read it so much that most of the pages have all fallen out now. But I refuse to throw it out.

C.S. Lewis and George Orwell

...No joke, I was 9 when I first read Orwell and that as because I came across an extract of 1984 in a mock exam, liked it and decided to get the book.
