Top 5 books from my childhood

I've been feeling quite nostalgic lately so I thought I would compile a list of my favourite books from my childhood. Here we go......

1: Noddy goes to school by Enid Blyton
I have a picture of me "reading" this when I was about three- I had the whole series and read them avidly
2: The Enchanted Wood
Any of the Faraway Tree series I loved - who wouldn't love to live near a magical tree that had a different land ( like the Land of Topsy Turvy) at the top every time you went up??
 3: Bony legs the witch by Joanna Cole
Both my sister and I loved this picture book which is based on a Russian folk tale.
4: Drina dances in Italy by Mabel Esther Allan
This was from my ballet phase!
5:Danny, the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl
My most favourite teacher ever, read this to us at primary school and I lapped up every word of it!

I'd love to hear about your fave books, just leave me a comment here on the blog or tweet me @JuliadeRuiter. Also, please excuse the weird layout- the computer wasn't on my side today!



  1. Great post!
    My favs were:
    Alice in Wonderland - Lewis Carroll(I was so sad when I finished it because I didn't want it to be over!)
    The Magic Finger - Roald Dahl
    The Witch in the Cherry Tree - Margaret Mahy
    The Half Men of O - Maurice Gee (my favourite teacher read the class this trilogy and I just loved it!)
    Baby Sitters Club (I saved up my pocket money and collected these)

  2. Snap with the Babysitters Club books! :)
