I re-read this for professional reasons (research). It was a lot of fun. Because I read them all as a child, it is only now as I read them as an adult that I realise they read like children's stories.

It is also strangely topical because the first sto

My Family and Other Animals by Gerald Durrell

This is a very funny book. Reading it will make you want to adopt a pet, live on a Greek island and visit Gerald Durrell's zoo in Jersey.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

This is a wonderful book. If you think your school is bad, the one featured in the beginning of this book is horendous. I like the way Charlotte Bronte directly addresses the reader at the crucial moment (won't give it away for those who haven't read ...more

I was a reluctant reader when I was very young. The Asterix and Obelix series was very important to me. I loved the pictures but also the humour and the history.

One day when I was bemoaning the fact that Jane Austen was dead and she had written so few books, all of which I had read many many times, my husband suggested I should try reading Trollope. It was a brilliant suggestion. He is an excellent romance n ...more

Scarlett O'Hara is one of the great characters of literature. She is unpleasant and flawed, and yet inspirational and admirable. Whenever I hear a literary discussion where flaws in a character are equated with flaws in a book, I think of 'Gone With ...more

Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

Anne Shirley is a brilliant character. This is an inspiring story about a neglected child and how her life can be transformed. It is also very funny. I particularly like Anne's world weary opinions about women who have too many twins.

“Derrick, Samantha, and Michael were all very good at avoiding being murdered. Nanny Piggins considered this to be one of the most important life skills.”
R.A. Spratt, The Adventures of Nanny Piggins

“Yes, I know, because schools are cruel, illogical, and unfair. But the thing is, life is cruel, illogical, and unfair. That is why the education system works so well. If schools and teachers did a good job and inspired children and made them enthusiastic about every subject, they would only be sadly disappointed when they got out into the real world. Better to disappoint them when they're young. It is more important to learn to cope with disappointment than learn how to do long division." - Nanny Piggins”
R.A. Spratt, Nanny Piggins and the Wicked Plan

“She crept around the house listening for breathing, chocolate eating, breaking porcelain, or any of the other peculiar little noises children make.”
R.A. Spratt, The Adventures of Nanny Piggins
