In the Mail on Sunday's Event magazine today I saw a really interesting article: The book I'd give my ten-year-old self. This article talks to famous authors/writers and asks them what book they'd give to themselves at ten, from classics like Little Women to more modern books like The Hunger Games trilogy.
Children's laureate Malorie Blackman chooses Talking Turkeys by Benjamin Zephaniah. Poet Michael Rosen says Matilda by Roald Dahl would probably have made him the happiest.
Anthony Horowitz says The Usborne Book of Greek Myths would be for him. Many other people you may know got involved so why not have a read:
The article is because on Feb 13th the shortlist for the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize will be announced - I definitely cannot wait to read what's on it.
If you're an adult what book would you choose? And if you're a ten year old (or around that age) have you read any of these and do you agree? I'm currently reading Little Women so I totally agree with Kate Mosse!
