Ah so many including Nancy Drew, Famous Five, Hardy Boys, Secret Seven, Aesops Fairy tales, classic renditions for kids - loved Dickens and Shakespeare as done by Puffin Publishers and they also did Roman and Greek Myths for kids. Scrooge, Great Expectations, Ullyses, Zeus and Athena and the Gods of Olympus. I don't remember who the publishers were but they did famous historical figures like the Venerable Bede, and Joan of Arc and Boadacia... loved them all and more, they were all so brave and courageous. Too many to think of but loved Noddy and Big Ears and other Enid Blyton stories too. Oh and what about all those bible stories? Loved them especially Cain and Abel, and Joseph's coat and Samson OMG so much more.
Am sorry that I missed so much like a lot of what I read above by authors I do not know about etc. The Narnia books must have been such a joy for the kids who read and read them today, I didn't and maybe should catch up now? Roal Dahl - nope not read hmmm how old am I tut tut!
Still, Treasure Island and Kim, and Jock of the Bushveldt and Gulliver's Travels were lots of fodder for little brains! I remember being so pleased when I could finally say BROBDIGNAG
What a joy a book is! What luck to be able to read!
As to having a favourite? Not possible for me to choose - but if I had to, it would be a close contest between Gulliver's Travels and Alice in Wonderland. Such imagination stretchers.
Thank you v v much for such a nice topic.
