1001 Children’s Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up By Julia Eccleshare. Preface by Quentin Blake.
This book has everything, including new titles and much-loved classics that many generations have read and enjoyed. From wordless picture books and books introducing the first words and sounds of the alphabet through to hard-hitting and edgy teenage fiction, the titles featured in this book reflect the wealth of reading opportunities for children. There are suggestions for reading according to age and reviews of the books are accompanied by evocative line drawings and colour artworks from the books themselves, together with reproductions of original jackets and photographs of the authors. In addition, some of our most famous and familiar children’s authors including writers and illustrators such as Philip Pullman, Michael Morpurgo, Jacqueline Wilson, Lauren Child and Eric Carle write about their favourite story by another author. And if you want to know what is their favourite story of all time? Well, you’ll have to read this book to find out.
