  7. Jonathon Cushenan

    My favourite book is 1984 by George Orwell. It’s dark and harrowing but shows the human soul and love for what it should be!

  16. Sarah Morris

    As a kid I loved anything by Enid Blyton, The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, Mallory Towers, St Clares books, I enjoyed escaping to another world on reading them, happy days!

    All of the Narnia books, anything by Enid Blyton, Nancy Drew, Charlottes web, and a book called The Stream that stood Still.

  20. Suzanne

    Please enter me in the competition.

    These seem to be well written, imaginative books reminiscent of books such as those by Jules Verne. They deserve to be classics.

  21. Laura Pritchard

    I loved wartime stories like ‘Carrie’s War’ by Nina Bawden or ‘Homecoming’ by Michelle Magorian, and anything by Roald Dahl!

  22. Stephen Harrison

    Noddy Goes To School! Enid Blyton, Halcyon Days of Innocence, Until the Liberals made guilt a way of life for western humanity!

  23. Hayley Ali

    The railway children! I know what you’re thinking, but No, seriously when I first got that book I thought the same and thats why I kept it stored away for years, I thought the name of the books boring enough, forget that! Then one day when i was bored ‘really bored’ I just so happened to open it and read the first page And I was hooked after that. Its brilliant and now I feel bad 🙁

  24. Amanda

    The entire Mr Men series, but Mr Strong is probably still my favourite, I can’t cook an egg without thinking of Mr Strong!

  25. Michelle Bamber

    I absolutely loved all the Mr Men books, so much so that I have now gone on to buy the set for my own children 😀

  26. Cheryll H

    I loved The Lord of the Rings triology. I read it when I was 12 and then about 4 or 5 times a year until I had children 🙂

  27. Laura C. Martin

    My favourite book as a child was The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. My Primary 6 teacher read it to us as a treat on a Friday afternoon and we were enthralled by the story and couldn’t wait until the next week for another instalment.

  28. Phyllis Ellett

    Great prize, my favourite book from when I was younger was and possibly still is The Mystery of the Missing Man by Enid Blyton

  29. Deborah Nicholas

    Keep having urges to start and collect them all when i see the odd one at a carboot sale!! LOL

    Thanks for the chance to win – i have 4 sons who would love these books!

  30. Emma K

    My favourite was Goodnight Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian. I actually still remember clearly reading it for the first time when I was 7 and I have re-read it again every year since then. My original copy got so worn out that I bought another.

    The best bit was when I was older I actually got to meet the author who was lovely and also signed all my books and was thrilled to see my original copy was so well read 🙂

  31. Ruth Worthington

    I loved the Pippi Longstocking stories by Astrid Lindgren – I have a nine year old that always wears her hair in two plaits and always call her pippi and she gets really annoyed with me.


    The malory Towers series by Enid Blyton, I could read all of them one after the other in a day with a plate of bread covered in mayonaise (so I could join in the midnight feasts ;))

  33. Gemma Rennie

    Gosh favourite childrens book, there are sooooo many to choose from but my absolute favourite would have to be Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeildt. As a ballerina I dreamed of performing on the stage and read this book over and over again.

  34. Emma Mason

    too many to choose from, I was such a book worm, but I especially loved Mallory Towers (Enid Blyton), Teddy Robinson (when I was quite small) and Flossie Teacake (as I got older). I also had all the Secret 7 books which I reread and reread. Oh, and not forgetting Roald Dahl, of which The BFG was my favourite 🙂

  35. Rahela Ahmed-Uddin

    Anything by Enid Blyton. Even now every now and again I’ll re-read all the books again. My favourites were the Famous Five, The Mystery Series and the Adventure Series

  36. Garry Chambers

    I used to enjoy reading the “… Adventure” books by Willard Price. Apparently they have all been “modernised”, but I don’t know if that is a good thing or not. Presumably there were some politically incorrect things in the originals.

  37. Michelle Rayner

    I love the Albert Bear books, he got into all sorts of situations and it was so much fun to see him get himself in and back out of trouble

  38. Richard Talbot

    My favourite book is actually one my mum wrote just for me! She wrote about an evil warlock called Maddening Gloome, who turned girls into trees and boys into birds! My mum wrote a whole series of them. They were short stories and never failed to keep me enthralled.I now tell them to my own four children and love that they love them the way I did, and still do.
    Ps. Great giveaway, thank-you.

  39. Kim Christou

    My favourite book was The Magic Faraway Tree. What makes it even more special is that my daughter is now reading this in school and loves it just as much as I did 😀


    Wow just one book ? I have so many favourites, The Lion witch and the wardrobe, Enid Blytons Fantastic five, Danielle Steeles Kaliedoscope, John Sauls Suffer the children. Oh so many books i just love reading

  41. lois m levy

    TheLion Witch and the Wardrobe..I am 60 and still read it at least once a year. Also bought it for my children and grandchildren. It has stood the test of time.
