I’m not doing very well at posting one of these a day but I’m still working slowly through the questions… I suppose the important thing is that I’m still going, rather than how quickly I get through them.
I’m not sure I can pinpoint a single favourite book but I utterly loved The Famous Five by Enid Blyton. Family, adventures, a dog, picnics, ginger beer… That was the life I wanted as a child and I loved every single things those four children got up to.
