My favorite was, Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah. I used to trace the pictures learning how to draw. :D

My favorite non-classic is "Rhymes Without Reason" by Mervyn Peake. It contains thirteen gloriously illustrated nonsense verses, three of which I can spout at the drop of a hat, even after all these years. My father gave us the book when I was a teenager, sixty-plus years ago.
Read samples of my Martian series (by Dorothy Piper) and two romances (by Joni Havel) on Smashwords.
Hard copies of all are on Amazon.

I don't remember the names of anything when I was too young. I know by the age of 10 I did have a favourite, Behind the Attic Wall by Sylvia Cassidy. In grade 6 I actually did a book report in costume and voices and everything :)
I even read it about 4 years ago. It was obviously not as magical as back then, but it was just as charming.

Maria Elena Walsh stories, Phillip Pullman books, Harry Potter series! And Matilda, of Roald Dahl, of course (and when you grow up you can still read it with that smile on your face and then read any of the good adult stories of this author!)

Anyway, guys, CHILDHOOD IS NOT OVER! NEVER!

I keep on reading childrens book, and album books, and I enjoy them A LOT. That is for children doesn't not mean its not quality. As I said, the better authors and the better books for children can be read at all ages, and no shame at all.

This is a difficult question, I had so many! I really enjoyed the Narnia chronicles by C.S Lewis and another series called The Famous Five by Enid Blighton. The latter series in particular used to ignite my imagination. The stories were set in the 1940s/50s and were centered on a group of five friends. Each book would begin with them going on a picnic and then ending up going on some adventure :D

Harry Potter, :mrgreen: and it's still one of my most favorite books.
