Backwards look at books

Here is a list of some of the picture books I was slightly obsessed with when I was younger:

  • Phoebe and the Hot Water Bottles –
    One of my absolute favourites there is a copy going on Ebay at the moment for over $100. It’s out of print and Mum still has my copy somewhere!
  • The Light House Keeper’s Lunch
  • Morris’s Disappearing Bag
  • JAM
  • The Plant Sitter
  • Tony’s Hard Work Day
  • The Worst Person In the World
  • Tessa Snaps Snakes/My Farm
  • Courdory
  • Grandma and the Pirates
  • Burglar Bill
  • Peepo
  • Pugwash the Pirate
  • The Happy Lion
  • The Digging-est Dog
  • Go Dogs Go
  • A Fish Out of Water
  • Cricktor
  • The Wild Washerwomen
  • The Great Tasmanian Tiger Hunt

And some early novels…

  • The Twits/George’s Marvelous Medicine/Fantastic Mr. Fox
  • The Boxcar Children – Gertrude Chandler Warner, first novel I ever read I would’ve read the entire series many many times. I do not own any of them 🙁
  • The Trolley Car Family
  • Fantastic Faraway Tree (and set)
  • Magic Wishing Chair (and set)
  • Children of Cherry Tree Farm (and set)

    Some say that it was after this, that i grew up. I tend to disagree 😛
