Favourite Five Books

Welcome to our Favourite Five feature where children choose the  books they like best. 

The March/April Favourite 5s were chosen by 13 year old twins Alphie and Grace with a distinct lack of overlap!

Grace's list was
1: Star of Kazan by Eva Ibbotson
2: Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgo
3: Garbage King by Elizabeth Laird
4: And That's When it Fell Off in my Hand.. Louise Rennison
5: Holes by Louis Sachar

Alphie's was
1: The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud
2: Infernal Devices by Philip Reeve
3: Golem's Eye by Jonathan Stroud
4: Shadow of the Minotaur by Alan Gibbons
5: Predator's Gold by Philip Reeve

Thanks in stereo to Alphie and Grace.

If your child or class would like to see their choice of books on-line, we'd love to hear from them. They can send an email to
or fill in the Favourite Five form

They can include fiction and non-fiction and can group books in the same series or by the same author together if they wish (so Harry Potter could count as one choice rather than five).
