50 books every eleven year old should read
There's some good inspiration in this list of 50 books that would be ideal for kids starting secondary school, compiled by The Independent.
Selected by Philip Pullman, Michael Morpurgo, Kary Guest, John Walsh and Michael Rosen, there is lots to induce nostalgia, or spark the curiosity, for example:
Emil and the Detectives
A Hundred Million Francs
The Phantom Tollbooth
The Elephant Child
When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit
The London Eye Mystery
Lots to think about for our next 'Classics We Should Have Read' month.
