Re: Childrens Books:Do You Remember These?
I learned to read with Janet and John
My favourites at primary school and as a young teen were the Just William
books by Richmal Crompton, Jennings
Books by Anthony Buckeridge, the Swallows and Amazons
series by Arthur Ransome and, of course!, Biggles
by W. E. Johns (essential reading for every young person then).
The first two series I thought were hilarious, the other two just plain adventurous (until I read King Soloman's Mines
which scared the s%^t out of me).
Another I remember with some pleasure was one called The Silver Sword
, I can't remember who wrote it but it was a war time adventure taking place in Europe.
