The Hunger Games
(Paperback)
Suzanne Collins
The idea of putting children in an enclosed space and having them fight for survival has long been a familiar trope in human entertainment, featured in works from Lord of the Flies to the movie Battle Royale. Suzanne Collins' series The Hunger Games subverts the format by promoting this juvenile blood-fest from a fringe pursuit, to an annual ritual central to the society in which it is held. Being the most recent work on this list, The Hunger Games embodies particularly modern concerns: the rise of reality television, the lust for fame, and the necessity for humans to be heavily armed when embarking on camping trips.

Five on a Treasure Island
(Paperback)
Enid Blyton
 
Detectives doesn’t get jollier than the Famous Five. They’re not always the best crime solvers, but they can always be relied on to stumble over a dastardly smuggling plot at exactly the right moment. And they are excellent at picnics. Ginger beer and macaroons all round!

The Disreputable History of Frankie...
(Paperback)
Emily Lockhart
 
Frankie is a smart, prickly heroine, angry at being underestimated simply because she’s a pretty girl, and the lengths she goes to in order to prove herself – a series of escalating pranks – are both funny and satisfying. The more times I read this book, the more resonant it becomes. It’s as much a meditation on gender and power as it is a hilarious revenge tale.

Two Boys Kissing
(Paperback)
David Levithan
 
What makes Levithan’s tenth novel – which follows the stories of several teen boys as they watch two young men attempt to break the world record for the longest kiss – is not just a heartbreaking and hopeful story. It’s not just the fact that it’s narrated by ghost uncles, the generation of gay men killed by AIDS, witnessing a world wholly changed, and still the same. It’s the fact that Levithan himself, a pioneer in writing and publishing stories about queer teens, paved the way for this book to be published.

How to Save a Life
(Paperback)
Sara Zarr
 
Nobody writes redemption stories like Sara Zarr, and this tale, about a mother and daughter in the aftermath of their husband/father’s death, and a pregnant teen, is a stunner. A look at grief and what it means to be a family, this book had me sobbing the ugly cry at the end.

Ernest
(Paperback)
Catherine Rayner
This is the story of Ernest the Moose and his efforts to fit inside the book. He squeezes and squashes but of course he’s still too big. Ernest’s solution to his problem (which I won’t ruin for you) is deeply satisfying.

Holes
(Paperback)
Louis Sachar
 
I’ve never read a finer book. I don’t think a better book exists. This book is everything. Funny, sad, tense, heartbreaking. THE modern classic.

The Story of the Little Mole Who Knew...
(Hardback)
Werner Holzwarth; Wolf Erlbruch
Oh how I love this book! One day Little Mole pokes his head out of his hole only to have something rather nasty land on his head. I suppose you could class this as educational (I can certainly identify more types of poo than I could) but I chose The Story of the Little Mole Who Knew it Was None of His Business because whoever you read it to, will love you for it. The illustrations are sketchbook gorgeous, and the text . . . I’ll let speak for itself . . . ‘Rat-a-tat-tat-fifteen little round beans shot past the mole’s ears. He saved himself with a daring leap.’ Genius!

The Tiger Who Came to Tea
(Board)
Judith Kerr; Judith Kerr
My first memory of The Tiger who Came to Tea is hearing it at story time in nursery school. I love the way that Sophie and her mother treat the arrival of the tiger as they would a neighbour by politely inviting him in. At four I was fascinated that the tiger managed to drink ‘all the water in the tap’. Judith Kerr’s illustrations and storytelling are full of charm. Definitely a classic.

All the Bright Places
(Paperback)
Jennifer Niven
 
I read this six months ago and still haven’t let go of it. People are comparing it to The Fault in our Stars with good reason. Heartbreaking and pretty blooming wonderful.

Moomin: The Complete Tove Jansson...
(Paperback)
Tove Jansson
Specifically the story called 'The Spring Tune' - the best description I've read about the elusive nature of the tunes that we carry around in our heads & how we must be careful as to how & when we try to 'harvest' them. All songwriters need to read this story.

The Cat in the Hat
(Paperback)
Dr. Seuss
I couldn’t put together a list of my favourite books without including a Dr Seuss. To be honest you could swap The Cat in the Hat for Fox in Socks, The Lorax, or any Dr Seuss, but The Cat in the Hat is the first one I reach for when only Seuss will do (I have days like that). I like the limited colour palette, but it’s the rhyming, slightly anarchic story that I love.

The Secret Garden
(Paperback)
Frances Hodgson Burnett
 
The story of Mary Lennox, the unloved, unloveable orphan warmed to life along with her secret garden, gave me one of my first female heroes. They should try moving her from the kiss-of-death Children’s Classics shelf, let her slug it out with the newcomers and see what happens.

Stuck
(Paperback)
Oliver Jeffers; Oliver Jeffers
 
I’m a HUGE fan of Oliver Jeffers work in general, and I could have picked out any one of his books. I’m not sure he’s capable of putting a mark on a piece of paper that doesn’t look just right. His picture books always have great stories with gentle humour, and are SO beautifully put together. Stuck begins when a boy gets his kite stuck in a tree. He tries throwing more and more things at it to get it down, which get crazier as he goes along.
