top ten children's books2

  1. The Chronicles of Narnia by C S Lewis – those books include The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Prince Caspian and The Silver Chair.
  2. What Katy Did and What Katy Did Next by Susan Coolidge – the stories of Katy Carr and her siblings. These are great. Can’t recommend them enough.
  3. All the Mary Poppins books by P L Travers – so much better than the film!
  4. All the Heidi books by Johanna Spyri .
  5. The Chronicles of Prydain books by Llloyd Alexander.
  6. The Wishing Chair and The Faraway Tree books by Enid Blyton.
  7. Anything by Roald Dahl, although I particularly love The Witches.
  8. The Fox Busters by Dick King Smith – one of the first books I bought with my own pocket money!
  9. All the books by E Nesbitt, but I loved The Phoenix and the Carpet and The Enchanted Garden the best.
  10. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster – a bizarre book, but very enjoyable.

  1. The Phantom Tollbooth. Check. Narnia. Check. I didn’t like the Mary Poppins books as much as the movie. The kids kind of seemed like brats (no offense intended.) Thanks for sharing!


    • I know what you mean!! I still enjoyed the books though! Have you read the Prydain books? They are really good.

      • I don’t think so. What are they about, they sound interesting?


      • Fantasy for kids aged 10-14….really good.
