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
Just William
The Elephant Child
Refugee Boy
When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit
Private Peaceful
The London Eye Mystery

Lots to think about for our next 'Classics We Should Have Read' month.
