Yes, thanks!

I also liked Berenstein Bears and the Arthur books!
No problem... I liked the Boxcar Children series too :)

My childhood bookss-I still read 'em-they comprise the majority of my bookshelf...

Enid blyton i love her for a thousand reasons! The books are funny, quirky and VERY readable! Noddy was my FIRST book series and I remember my mum reading them out. They were so beautifully illustrated. And then...Famous Five, Secret Seven, Five Find-outers, Malory Towers, St.Claire's...right into my teens I read them. they are great-though NOW I don't like the gender bias and everything that I did not notice as a kid!Tongue

Harry Potter was not actually a kid's book for me-I was around 14 when I first read HP.

Oh..and bits and pieces of Chalet school, baby-sitter's club, sweet valley, saddle club serieses.Tongue

Plus, Edith Nesbitt,-her stories are so funnily written.Tongue

Judy Blume! Well her less risque books like Tales of a fourth grade nothing and the fudge ones.

and Roald Dahl..Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the giant peace, BFG, Matilda, etc. Forever classic.

Also,  Series of Unfortunate Events was really popular as well.
