Feature and Follow #9

September 20, 2013

Feature and Follow
The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read.

Q. What were some of your favorite picture books as a kid? If you have kids, what are your favorites to read to them?

Is it a gold fish that is meant to have a 3 second memory? I’m not sure but my memory is a little like that. I can barely remember anything before age 10, so I absolutely cannot come up with any picture books. Instead I’m listing my favourite books from my later childhood years 🙂

As you can see I was a very serious fan of Enid Blyton as a child. I devoured many of her books but my absolute favourites were her Adventure series.  Oh I loved the escapades of Philip, Dinah, Lucy-Ann and Jack.

Island of Adventure   A Tale of Time City  Run With The Wind   The Enchanted Wood   BFG

Adventure Series – Enid Blyton

A Tale of Time City – Diane Wynne Jones

    The BFG’s a classic! Loved him! 😀 I still sometimes refer to my nieces and nephews as chidlers. 😀

    I actually haven’t heard of these but they look great! (Or maybe I don’t recall every book from my childhood which is the most likely answer ;-))

    Haven’t heard of any of those before. Not much of a reader as a little kid.
