Re: Childrens Books:Do You Remember These?

I learned to read with Janet and John books

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.

When I was very young I liked the Little Grey Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Noddy but obviously they were not my choices at that age.

I loved 'The Turf Cutter's Donkey'. Still have a very old paper back version.

If I told you it would be the same old story. Insulted by the git for getting to grip at about 9? with the wisdom of books for younger children . And he had never heard of Kipps

I have always enjoyed reading. The Kindle is one of the best modern inventions, imo.

I liked the Enid Blyton books, in particular, when very young.
