..It could be considered fantasy, but I read all four volume Arthurian legends by Howard Pyle and some Robin Hood ones. They weren't really child fantasies with all the fighting and adultery, but that's what I loved reading when I was ten.

Yeah....many adults don't read children's books......But in my booklist 99% fictions are children's book. My workmates call me elizaby, my boss's daught called Elizabeth, my boss call her that, she's only 9. I'm so much like a child really, but I don't like toys or animals. Children's book, Children's celebrity, children's <u>everything</u>!

Well, yes, Harry Potter is nice, and I also like  the Narnia Chronicles.
And our daughter's got some Emily Rodda books as well. They are quite good too.

Potter rocks. I also love Phillip Pullman's 'His Dark Materials' Trilogy.

   Big C.S. Lewis fan here.  My girls like Lewis and Emily Rodda's stuff.  Julia read Emily Rodda when she was younger but has picked up C.S. Lewis since coming to Canada.  Truly a pity he's not still alive.  I would have loved to have met and interviewed him.  :)

   Sorry, old stick the mud's here, no J.K. Rowling or Harry Potter fans in this family.  :(
