RE: What books did you like as a child?


My ultimate favourite book when I was a child was Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
I must've read it a million times.
I mainly read non-fiction as a child - things on science, fossils, paleontology and mythology.
I was a bit of a geeky child. Hehe.

This topic had me digging through the depths of my over packed bookcase to find my old favourites. When I was little I loved the Milly Molly Mandy stories, Black Beauty, The Hobit, and Jane Eyre especially. I read a lot when I was little, so it's nice to reminisce about the books I used to adore.

I adored the Princess Diaries series when I was maybe nine, even though I didn't understand half of what went on in them. XD

As a really little child, like a toddler, I liked Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. Hell, I loved that book. And Lily's Purple Plastic Purse and the Olivia the Pig books. I still have them somewhere, actually.

The Princess Diaries was so good!

There was a series of books about a boy called Alfie, I really liked them when I was little. I remember one where Alfie accidentally locked himself inside the house or something.

I used to read Enid Blyton constantly, collecting dog eared copies of her books from charity shops and book swap sites so I ended up with the more obscure stories like 'The Very Peculiar Cow'. A lot of them had yellow pages and hand-written notes inside them. In one, somebody tried out different variations on the spelling of 'pasties'; in another some literary genius wrote 'Cor Bob stinks' in pencil. If anything, this made the whole experience more enjoyable.

I was a Harry Potter and Dragon Lance kid. Now I'm just an older Harry Potter and Dragon Lance Kid.

When I was reeaallllyy small, I used to like 'The Critter' series, with books like 'Just got to Bed' and
'Just take a bath'. I haven't seen them around anymore, but then again, I haven't looked. I wonder
if they still make them.

 I'd really like to annotate my books with comments and whatnot then giving them to second hand shops or something, but I'm too neat with them and the idea of writing on them makes me feel funny.

I was just thinking about this today!
I know I sort of posted in before, but when I was really little I loved and adored Beatrix Potter.
I still find the idea of little animals in cute victorian clothes adorable, I even try to draw my own.
When I was younger I had a plate and coaster set, then recently my mum got mea mug with Jemima puddle duck on it.
It's kind of rare to find that kind of stuff these days, but I love to collect it.

I absolutely loved all book by Roald Dahl, especially The Witches and Matilda! I think I've read them 20 times each! And I still read his books from time to time! It's real magic for me!

I also LOVED Roald Dahl. My favorite book was Into the Land of the Unicorns by Bruce Coville and I still have my well-worn copy of White Fang. I read lots of encylopedias and old text books. I had lots of Enid Blyton books which I loved.

I actually got an award at primary school for the most books read during school holidays (whoever said they don't give out rewards for reading was wrong!).

My classmates were sometimes intimidated by me because I knew stuff about stuff.

Edit: I cannot believe I forgot Aesop's Fables! There was a copy in the school library which I took out every week.

I cant remember the names of them ...! But if anyone recognises the description please enlighten me!

I remember I loved a book when I was a bout five. It was a bout a Giraffe? I think..that had many different coloured spots..I have a feeling its a Dr Seuss but cant be quite sure..

Another book I loved was about a fox that used to try and steal the chickens eggs..until the chickens learnt to fly and used to divebomb him..have a feeling it was Dick King Smith but cant be sure..

The only one I can remember was Journey to the River Sea by eva ibbotson...that was my favourite as a child as I wasnt a big reader at all till i turned 11 and first read Harry Potter..
