Childhood Favourites: Extras

I thought that giving myself thirty choices for books which shaped my reading as a child would be plenty, but there were so many which I couldn’t squeeze onto the list that I felt they deserved a post of their own.  The following are books which I adored as a child (and as an adult!), and ones which I feel that any child will love.
