15. The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
I still adore The Very Hungry Caterpillar, so much so that I have a Hungry Caterpillar mug and badge set, which were purchased for me quite recently. The story is simple but the illustrations make it incredibly memorable.
14. The Lottie Project by Jacqueline Wilson
One of my absolute favourite Wilson books. I love the mixture of present and past here, and Charlotte and Lottie are both marvellously drawn characters.
13. Mrs Tiggy-Winkle by Beatrix Potter
It was incredibly difficult for me to choose a favourite from Potter’s delightful tales, but Mrs Tiggy-Winkle has stuck with me forever. I adore her as a character, and am sure that I will even enjoy this book when I’m well into my old age.
12. The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr
Tigers have always been my favourite animals, and I adore afternoon tea and tea parties, so this was obviously going to rank amongst my favourites.
11. Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne
Utterly delightful in its entirety, and no childhood is complete without reading the compendium.
