    What are your top five favourite books for children that you have also read as an adult?

    So maybe you loved Winnie the Pooh as a child but also enjoy it as an adult reader - my list includes Pooh, the Hobbit, Lord of the Rings and the Narnia Series.

    In no particular order:

    Winnie-the-Pooh (a beautiful elegy to childhood);

    The Wind in the Willows (a charming evocation of the British Edwardian countryside);

    His Dark Materials Trilogy (Stunning, dark, challenging and ultimately, exultantly humanist);

    The Hobbit (The beginning of a new mythology from the man who taught mythology at Oxford);

    Artemis Fowl (a cheeky and irreverant poke at traditional fantasy stories).
