|Cool trousers, lads!
A few weeks ago Bookbabblers - a great website all about children's and YA books, full of author interviews and reviews - invited me to come up with a list of five favourite books I loved when I was a kid. I cheated shamelessly by including two complete series and all the Rupert Bear annuals since the beginning of time. Even so, it was torture to whittle my list down to five. I've been thinking of all the fabulous books I left out ever since: The Family from One End Street, Five Children and It, The Worst Witch, Watership Down, The Wool-pack, The Secret Garden, The Borrowers, I Capture the Castle . . . the list goes on and on.
Here's the five that did make it onto my Bookbabblers list and also a Q and A.
What would be in your Top Five?
