RE: What books did you like as a child?


When I was tiny:
Funny Bones
The Magic Key
The Tiger Who Came To Tea
Meg and Mog
The Patchwork Cat
The Very Hungry Caterpillar

When I was a little older:
The Famous Five
The Secret Seven
The Hobbit, when I was six
Lord of the Rings, when I was seven
Then basically anything by Jacqueline Wilson.

After that I discovered Pratchett and Poe, and it's been downhill ever since ;)

I read a whole lot of Enid Blyton, the Famous Five, the Secret Seven, Malory Towers, another like Malory Towers I can't remember what its called. Then I read Nancy Drew, the Hardy Boys, The Babysitters Club, Mathilda, Harriet the Spy and anything else I could get my hands on! Oh and the first few Harry Potter books, then I went off them until my teens.

The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy set
John Christopher's "Tripods" quadrilogy,and "The Guardians"
Peter Dickinson's "Changes" trilogy
Monica Hughes's "The Tomorrow City"

A set called the "Isis Trilogy" by an author I forget,lots of stuff already mentioned,and all sorts of sci-fi type stuff. One story I'd love to read again was called "The Pen and the Penumbra" which I ran across in some SF compilation but can't find anywhere. Also the novelizations of "V" and the "Aliens" movies.

The Miffy series- I still have them in my room. And anything by Enid Blyton, although I often had problems with them. I didn't like how she had people hitting their dogs, or how righteous some of the characters were (although back them I didn't know what that meant).

My favourite book was Fat Puss by Harriet Castor. It was about this massive cat who was so much cooler than all the skinny cats because he could roll down hills and float on water.

The Sophie books by Dick King-Smith (I think!) - about a feisty young animal-loving tomboy. The one childs' story-book heroin I could identify with at the time.

I used to read the Animal Ark books. A lot. I never could get the full collection though.

And Jacqueline Wilson was practically my goddess for a while. Yes, I know all her books are practically the same, but I still worshipped them.

Well, when I was rather young, I was wayy into the Baby Sitters Club! HaHa! I did alot of baby sitting in my small, country town. And I would lose myself in these books.

The Poisionwood Bible by Barbara Kingslove, it's a story of an American family, headed by a preacher that goes to Africa for a mission. The detail of the living adjustment and what they endure is amazing.

Any book by Tim O'Brien, he writes stories of soliders in varying places in their life. While overseas at war, when they get home, trying to draft dodge. Great tales and descriptions.

Inkheart was one of my favourite books. I quite liked the sequel too, but the third one ruined it completely.

I started reading at a very young age.
I remember when The Tale of Tom Kitten was my favorite. All those books by Beatrix Potter. (:
Though I read Alice In Wonderland books and Grimm's fairytales a lot.

I loved the golden books, nursery rhyme books & Beatrix Potter.
Black beauty...um Lots of fairy books ( I loved the illustrations. Some of the artwork is really amazing)
I don't remember the title but I remember this book about a girl with wild hair and no matter what the hair stylists used they couldn't cut it, it kept breaking the tools. Then she screamed and destroyed the place. She also ate plates and scared elephants.
I used to love that book...

Most of Jacqueline Wilson's books.
And when I was even younger, some books about a mischevious dinosaur called Dilly.
I can't remember what else...

My uncle used to be a great fan of Rupert, so when I was born he passed all his books and annuals down to me.

I LOVED Rupert. I learned to knit, and I made myself a yellow scarf. I used to dress like him, because someone bought me a pair of yellow jeans and I had a red jumper.

I completely forgot about Rupert until yesterday, when my mother gave all the Rupert books back to my uncle, because his father-in-law is a collector. I got a bit misty-eyed parting with them.

I can't even remember what I read before I was 10. Cause I basically read everything I could get my hands on. We had a rule that I wasn't allowed to read when I was downstairs. Since all I would do was sit and read.

One of those annuals might be worth a lot of money; they misprinted one and got Rupert brown on the cover,not white. Only a few survived,but those that did are worth hundreds,maybe a thousand or more to the right people.

I used to love "The Ghosts" by Antonia Barber when I was little. I remember it being in the school library, and I could barely put it down after I first found it. I was also a fan of the Discworld books after my Dad introduced me to them, and Anne McCaffrey's books (although I spent far more time trying to draw the dragons on the front covers than I did actually reading them). I think my favourite was "Starchild and Witchfire" by David Henshall, though. Again, it featured dragons, which was a big draw for me, and the story was just brilliant. I still read it from time to time, and it's just as great as it was when I was little. :) (The ending is ridiculously cheesy, but I think that just adds to its charm. :P)
