If you didn’t know already from all the book chatter happening on social media, Monday 7th- Friday 11th October is Children’s Book Week!

For this year’s theme, Booktrust has put together a list of what they believe to be the 100 best children’s books and are asking people to vote for their favourites. With this in mind, we asked our (small) department to nominate their personal favourite children’s book (only one was allowed!) published in the last 100 years, and below are the results:
Have you seen Booktrusts lists, and have you attempted to select your favourite yet? Let us know!
