Was Animal Ark the one with the vets' daughter, possibly called Mandy? I read one about a sheepdog, set at Christmas, where they thought she was worrying the sheep and would have to put down.
i loved the animal ark books - lol i had the one you are talking about when i was about 10 - this is so shameful but it borught tears to my eyes lol - aww i was only 10 bless!

Alice in Wonderland, The chronicles of Narnia( obvious christian propaganda, but, what the hell), Roald Dahl, Fairy/ folk tales and mythology, Malorie Blackman, Judy Blume( The freckle one)Nonsense poetry, Owl and the pussy cat, the quangle wangles hat etc. The Hobbit and to my eternal shame Enid Blyton, although to my credit, I never understood why George was so keen to be a boy and thought Julian was a self-righteous... . Can anyone else believe that they actually ate cows tongue?

I still have most of the books I read as a kid. I used to love the famous five books. I was so like George! Also read those Brian Jacques ones, but didn't really like them just refused to quit before the end. I loved the Animals of Farthing Wood books, and all the Roald Dahl ones. And Alice in Wonderland. And Paddington. Jeez I used to read all the time.

I loved paddington! He made me try marmalade AND look up Peru in my atlas!

Didn't get why Winnie the pooh and co. loved christopher Robin so much, though, he was an annoying little know-it-all.

It's Okay, he's not real, no real boy would be that much of an **** and have everyones approval and deference.

I know but I used to imagine of how I would have changed the storyline. I really didn't like how he was in Mystery Moor.

I used to love reading books by Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl and Jacqulene Wilson when I was younger. I used to love the Goosebump books too, I used to take out as many as I could from the library. Me and my friend also liked the Girls like you books or something. The titles of the books would be a girls name and it was about friends who had promised to have a holiday romance. Me and my friend noticed them in the library because the books were called our names and we ended up reading them all.

I liked Roald Dahl too, then Enid Blyton, then later on I liked the Earthsea books, which were a pain to read (I loved them then but when I bought a new one recently, I couldn't stand it).

You're right. I didn't like Julian either. In fact, I don't think I liked any of the characters (except possibly the dog). I just read the books because they were exciting, and set in a cool place/places. And naturally I imagined that sort of adventure happening to me.

Chronicles of Narnia ruled. Started reading some fantasy books quite young, e.g. LOTR/Hobbit and His Dark Materials.

I got more annoyed with Anne for being so wet...

I sort of read anything and everything as a child; erm... Roald Dahl, Enid Blyton, CS Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia, Lewis Carroll's Alice books, E. Nesbitt (think she wrote the book about the sand-creature that grants wishes (was it called It? - can't remember now) and The Phoenix and the Carpet), Tolkien (the Hobbit & LOTR), Pratchett's Bromeliad - Trucks, Diggers and Wings anyone? And of course Paddington! Ahhhh, memories.

I reread most of them, though I haven't read Paddington for ages...

Enid Blyton! - the best!
Loved 'The naughtiest girl in the school' so much, read it over and over and when i got older i got the 2 other books as a present (never knew they exsisted) 'naughtiest girl...becomes a moniter, and can't remember the other, but i read them a few times but was getting a bit old by then. Treasure those books and wana read them to my kiddies if i have any lol - they WILL sit and listen haha.

Famous Five - brilliant, first one i read was Five go off in a caravan and it sparked off collecting the others - still have them.

Secret seven but no so keen - not as gd as the FF.

Enid Blyton series'. Used to love the mystery, adnebture and school stories. Also, HARDY BOYS ruled! Had way for action than the dull Nancy Drew books. Goosebumps and Chronicles of Narnia as well. And how could I forget the brilliant Willard Price books! They were the best.
