This one is so much fun! My favourite childhood books?
I’m going on the assumption that this is pre-secondary school type books. Here’s a sample of what I remember loving reading:
I was really into any book that had a focus on animals or exaggerated characterisation (like in The Twits). I mean, Roald Dahl still is right up there, I think, for kids books. But I think the ‘Sophie’ series was most precious to me. I loved the character. She broke expected gender roles, and I think that’s a difficult things to pull off in younger fiction. Sophie, and her snail, rocks!
What about you? Which books shaped your childhood?
