1. Burglar Bill by Janet & Allen Ahlberg
A funny children's classic about one of the nicest burglars you'll ever meet.
2. Dogger by Shirley Hughes
This is a sweet story about a boy who loses his toy dog. Every child can relate to his pain!
3. Alpaca by Rosemary Billam
A story about a rabbit called Alpaca who gets forgotten amongst the other toys.
4. Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
Although the story is slightly scary as a child this book is still amazing.
5. The Jolly Postman by Janet & Allen Ahlberg
I really loved undoing the envelopes and reading other people's letters.
6. Famous Five series by Enid Blyton
A must-read for every ten year old, I'd stay up late at night to finish Enid Blyton books. Not to mention the amazing Magic Faraway Tree series.
7. The Worst Witch series by Jill Murphy
Before Harry Potter there was Mildred Hubble!
8. The Magic Finger by Roald Dahl
I enjoyed most of Roald Dahl's books but this was a favourite; a strange tale about a girl who zapped a group of duck hunters with her magic finger and turned them into ducks. Yes!
9. Esio Trot by Roald Dahl
This made me really want a tortoise of my own.
10. The Fiend next Door (and others) by Shirley Lavelle
I also loved this series, about a girl and her best friend Angela who always ends up getting her into trouble.
