I would like to pay tribute to some of my favourite Children’s Book Series that made me the reader I am today.  I always hated when a good story would end and that was why a series was so special.  I could continue reading about my favourite characters for longer than just one book.

1)  The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis – Still re-reading and enjoying them.  I have always loved stories where new worlds are created and explored.

Fav Character in the series – Prince Caspian (because he was brave and in my head handsome)

2) The Famous Five by Enid Blyton – Oh, the Adventure’s these kids had!  I always wished that I could solve mysteries as neatly and care free as they could.

Fav Book in the series – Five Run Away Together 

Fav Character in the series – Timmy the dog (because he was pretty much the reason they were all still alive)

3) Obernewtyn Chronicles by Isobelle Carmody – I found the story lines fascinating and hauntingly beautiful.

Fav Book in the series – Ashling

Fav Character in the series – Elspeth (because it is her story and she is powerful)

4) Ramona (novel series) by Beverly Cleary – The crazy antics of Ramona would keep me entertained for hours.

Fav Book in the series – Beezus and Ramona 

Fav Character in the series – Beezus (because as an older sister I could relate to her plight and anguishes)

5) The Wishing Chair (series) by Enid Blyton – A chair that flies to magical places, genius.

Fav Book in the series – The Wishing Chair Again

Fav Character in the series – Chinky (because he is a cheeky pixie with a heart of gold and a cool name)

6) Goosebumps (the original series) by R.L. Stine – I loved being scared when I was young and these books did the job nicely.

Fav Book in the Series – Monster Blood, Welcome to the Dead House, Stay out of the Basement, One Day and HorrorLand
