Fave books from childhood?


<b>Community Manager</b>
I was reading an Enid Blyton book to my daughter last night and it got me thinking about books I remember from my childhood like The Faraway Tree and the famous five etc, which books do you remember from your childhood?
When I was about 8,I started reading Tom Sawyer. It was good and I say,it was my favourite . ♥

Currently,My favourite is " A stranger in the mirror" from Sydney Sheldon


Mine was an Enid Blyton called Tales From Long Ago - it was her retelling of some myths and legends like Echo, Icarus and King Midus etc, etc. It's what got me fascinated with all that stuff. I also love the Faraway Tree stories and one that is still one of my favourite books now - The Iron Wolf by Richard Adams.
The Magic Faraway Tree was one of my favs, I think I still have it somewhere in the loft.
Alice in Wonderland, and The Lion, The witch and The Wardrobe were also favs of mine.

I remember lots. Famous Five, Fatty & The Five Find Outers, Secret Seven (all Enid Blyton).

Beatrix Potter was good.

Milly Molly Mandy (my sister used to read them to me).

Meg and Mog - stories about a witch and her cat - baby book really LOL

My favourites however, were the Irish Fairy tales that my Dad and my cousin used to tell me. I always used to cry when I heard the stories of Oisín and Niamh and Tír na nÓg - those were my favourites :)
I remember I got The Chronicles of Narnia one Christmas when I was young, and loving them. Anne of Green Gables, The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle and The Secret Garden were all favs when I was young too. :)
