Definitely Anne of Green Gables and Little Women and A Little Princess. For fantasy, I loved the Chronicles of Narnia, Prydain Chrinicles, Edward Eager's books (Half Magic, etc.) and E. Nesbit books (my fave was The Enchanted Castle). Also, the Babysitter's Club, American Girl, and Dear America Diaries.

Don't worry! I read all of those (and more like them) as much as I read the children's classics that other people are mentioning. :D

I was a huge ANIMORPHS fan!!! I would buy like all the books, and wait anxiously every month for the next one to come out...those were the good o' days! I sware, for all the money I spent on those books I could have bought a car...why was I so stupid! -_-

I also read all of the classics...that you have all already stated :P

Arrg, I loved Enid Blyton...I used to pretend I was in a boarding school...you know in malory towers, the swimming pool? Well I went to this beach in Cornwall where there was a swimming pool cut out of the rock on the beach, and for some reason I always visualised it like that...:LOL:

Hmm..I never did read when I wsa younger. It wasn't until much later in life that I grudgingly admitted that reading might, by the slimmest of chances, be a useful skill to have.
