    There once was a hole in my bucket, Which emptied before I could chuck it When I went to the toilet It really did spoil it

    I find Alice in Wonderland distinctly weird although I love Lewis Carroll's poems. Another children's story I dislike is Peter Pan ... I can remember finding it extremely annoying as a small child. Wind in the Willows is wonderful. Must admit I found The Hobbit a little underwhelming too.

  12. Walking On Broken Glass ~ Annie Lennox

    I've been rather disappointed with some of my adult re-reads of childhood favourites too. I can remember absolutely loving A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L'Engle and A Traveller In Time by Alison Uttley as a child, and although they are both excellent, they didn't have the same impact on my grown up self. On the other hand there are children's book I didn't read until I was an adult which I thought were wonderful and I so wish I'd read as a child so I could compare my reaction. The Wind In the Willows, The Secret Garden, Anne of Green Gables, The Little House On the Prairie series and Goodnight Mr Tom are some I can think of.
