Ooh yeah Goosebumps were ace, as were the Babysitter's Club books. When I was younger I loved "Babysitter's Little Sister" books and then when I was a bit older I LOVE LOVE LOVED Jaqueline Wilson books - especially The Bed and Breakfast Star and The Suitcase Kid. Anyone else?
And Goodnight Mr Tom is a true classic and was my absolute fave...still is really lol. :rolleyes:

some people said they hated her books but i loved them also, especially Girls in Love i loved that whole series, and i think the programme on TV is a good version. although ellie is a little more attractive than she is made out to be in the books!

Wasn't Enid Blyton very un-PC? Though I loved them when I was little! Alice in Wonderland absolutely rules though. I liked Roald Dahl, Anne of Green Gables (aww!), Little Women, and, ahem... Point Horror books. Horrible Histories were also cool

'Greedy Zebra' when I was really little.
Then Sharon Creech books, especially 'Bloomability', and some random book called 'From the mixed-up files of Mrs Basil E Frankweiler', an american one.
And of course, books by Enid Blyton (then I developed a feminist streak and now I can't read 'the Famous Five' any more.)

No she's right it was called the naughtiest girl in school - it was about a little girl called... Elizabeth??
And she was really bad and she went to boarding school and became nice
And there was a sequel with a friend of her mother called Annabella possibly?

Ah, I remember them, there were three books in the series... Elizabeth becomes good and gets to be a 'monitor' or something at the end

'My Naughty Little Sister' was something different - they were aimed at younger readers. My gran used to read them to me.

Anne of Green Gables! Aww those books are so amazing, I have all of them - even the spin offs.

Anything by Enid Blyton too - Malory Towers is just a classic. Then there's another boarding school one with twins...

The Famous Five books are great, but Anne always annoyed me so much!

'From the mixed up files of Mrs Basil. E . Frankweiler' - you are the first person I have met apart from myself to have read this book! I loved it when I was younger!

Hmmm - what else? 'Secret of platform 3 and three-quarters', 'Narnia Chronicles' of course, the 'Oz' chronicles, The Saddle club books - and my favourite Enid Blyton was 'The River of Adventure'.

I love kids books...
