And my book awards go to…

In no particular order, just a few ‘awards’ and ‘best of’ I would personally bestow
(Note: I will add to these as they occur to me):

 

FAVOURED AND MOST-REMEMBERED CHILDHOOD READS:

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl (yes, there is a sequel)

One Hundred and One Dalmatian by Dodie Smith (yes, it is a book)

The Starlight Barking (sequel) by Dodie Smith

Bambi by Felix Salten (yes, again it is a book and an excellent one)

Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild

The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley

Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain (also Huckleberry Finn, but Tom Sawyer was my favourite)

Heidi by Johanna Spyri, and other classics such as Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens, and Treasure Island, Gulliver’s Travels, Black Beauty etc., were all books I read during my childhood — I cannot believe people do not read these wonderful adventures now especially not at a young age.
