Just sitting here watching 'Witches' with the girls and told them that it was based on a book 'Witches' by Roald Dhal. Which got me thinking of all the books I read when I was their age.
I remember reading Witches, Matilda, B.F.G (Big Friendly Giant) all by Roald Dhal another one being Danny The Champion Of The World. And who could ever forget Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
I also read a lot of the usual story books about fairy tales with a handsome prince on a white horse etc etc......... but that didn't last long at all. (reality is much more interesting) There were also others but nothing that stands out just now, but they will.
So what books did you read when you were growing up? Now boys the magazines you buy DO NOT count as books you read when you were young
