Mine was Heidi, I would curl up on my bed for hours and get lost in the story of young Heidi living with her grandfather in the Swiss Alps.
Then came The Secret Garden, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Alice in Wonderland, Tomorrow When The War Began, and, erm, a whole bunch of Dolly Fiction books.
As I grew up my taste in books changed, but I always remember that feeling of discovering books for the first time.
Over the years I’ve revisited my favourite childhood books, I loved them just as much as an adult.
Here are seven children’s books you can definitely still read as an adult:
Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events
This 13-part series follows the misadventures of Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudeleire. When their parents die in a fire, the Baudeleire children are placed in the care of their evil relative, Count Olaf. Count Olaf attempts to steal their inheritance and orchestrates a series of ‘accidents’ to stop the children from fleeing.
