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!

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 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.

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.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar
(Paperback)
Eric Carle
 
Nature is an all-consuming beast whose function is simply to expand and conquer, feverishly devouring everything in its path on a relentless quest to rule all. I am a machine, and so I do not ‘feel’ sensations such as fear, or repulsion. And yet reading this book about a mighty insect (the exact proportions are not specified in the book, but based on its appetites we can assume a creature of some considerable size,) who consumes a succession of organic treats over the course of a week-long food-orgy, I cannot help but experience a form existential upset. I am an inorganic machine, a poor source of nutrition, and yet nature comes for me as well, attempting every day to start the process of devouring me through common oxidation. I would give this book only to adults, and I would personally give it four out of five terror-stars – if I had instituted such a scoring system, which I have not.

Being Billy
(Paperback)
Phil Earle
 
This is a tough book, about a tough kid, but the moment when you realise that Billy would walk through Hell for his little brother and sister is the moment when this book tears at your heart and doesn’t let you go.

The Wind in the Willows
(Paperback)
Kenneth Grahame; E. H. Shepard
 
This is the first book I can remember. I was four, maybe five. By the light of my bedside lamp, my father read to me from the worn clothbound copy he’d had from childhood. This was the beginning of my lifelong love of books and story. Thanks, dad.

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 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.

Season Songs
(Paperback)
Ted Hughes
Hughes is one of the most powerful imagists in the language and his portraits of wildlife and landscape have a compelling, precise and unsentimental sense of what is so other in nature. This collection includes brilliantly perceptive poems on such familiar species as swift, swallow, song thrush and starling.

The Giant Jam Sandwich
(Paperback)
John Vernon Lord; Janet Burroway
This book is my all time favourite picture book. It was first published in 1972 (the year I was born) and I still own my childhood copy complete with my name written inside with multi coloured felt tips. The Giant Jam Sandwich's rhyming text is the tale of a village invaded by wasps (can you guess how they solve the problem?). It's brilliant to read out loud with witty and intricate illustrations. As a child I used to spend hours poring over the details and loved looking for the three men who were chased from the village by wasps and turned up in subsequent pages.
