Go on a ramble through a world of secret gardens created in beautifully detailed pen-and-ink illustrations a€“all waiting to be brought to life through colouring, but each also sheltering all kinds of tiny creatures just waiting to be found. This story about a garden that transforms the lives of a group of children was serialized and then published as a whole in 1911. Many adults have discovered this book and been inspired by its observations on the values of the adult world. Best selling children’s author, Dahl, brought his love of chocolate to this fantasy tale, published in 1964.
Tolkien’s imagination, inspired by his knowledge of ancient languages and folk tales, has enthralled children and adults since The Hobbit’s publication in 1937.
Winnie the Pooh and his friends have delighted each generation since the author was inspired to write characters based on his son, Christopher Robin, and his son’s toys.
Grahame paints a reassuring world of comradeship, rural life, and “messing about on boats”. That said, this is a great list, and I've read most of them, and have heard of all of them.
I am trying to locate a book that my Mother and I read to my brother, who will be 60 years old in December.
The book is about a white rabbit who wants to be black, he is instructed by the wise ole owl (I think) how to accomplish his desire.
One of my favorite books to talk about this past season with bookstore buyers has been The Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book, which is just on sale as of last week. Orphaned Mary Lennox, a sickly child, is sent to live in England following her upbringing in India. It tells the story of Willy Wonka, eccentric owner of a chocolate factory and Charlie Bucket, the boy from a poor family. We are introduced to some of the characters that were to feature in the epic trilogy, Lord of the Rings. The first stories appeared in Winnie the Pooh (1926) and then in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). The sales figures for the series in June, 2008 was over 400 million copies sold and the novels have been translated into 67 languages, including Latin and Ancient Greek.
It's actually more readable for school-age kids than The Hobbit, and has spanned more generations than the Harry Potter series.


He would always cry when the little rabbit returned home, because his Mom did not know who he was.
The other books… loved the movies but never did get the opportunity to read the books- I think I am going to have to do that if I get the chance.
I am in my fifties and read these when I was little so it just goes to show that the true classics will be read for years to come by generation after generation. The AMAZING publisher Laurence King put it together with Johanna Basford.As cool as it looks here on screen, you pretty much have to see the finished book to believe it. Stories are important in sparking children’s imaginations and they teach them about the world. At the house of her guardian Uncle, Mary discovers a neglected walled garden that no one is allowed to enter.
The story is of a pilot stranded in the desert, an event that actually happened to Saint-Exupery, and his meeting a small boy from a tiny asteroid. This book is the perfect introduction to children’s literature and an entertaining source for bedtime stories. Home-loving hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, is persuaded to go on a treasure hunt with Gandalf the wizard and a group of dwarves.
Earlier, Pooh Bear was the subject of a poem in Milne’s collection of verses, When We Were Very Young (1924) and in more poems in Now We Are Six (1927). His adventures as the leader of The Lost Boys gang in Neverland lead him to escapades with Indians and pirates, his most dangerous enemy being Captain Hook. Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (who published under the name, Lewis Carroll) invented the characters for the daughters of one of his friends. The first book appeared in 1997, introducing us to the inner world of wizards and the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I have to agree with David though… the Box Car Children were my absolute favorite and should have been included on the list too. Here are some you will undoubtedly know along with some that are less familiar, and you don’t have to be a child to enjoy them.
The Little Prince, as he is known, has been visiting other worlds including Earth and tells the pilot of his adventures and how his encounters with adults have formed his philosophy. The tales include Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, the Elves and the Shoemaker, and Sleeping Beauty.


As the only child to behave well on the tour, Charlie receives another reward that is beyond his wildest dreams.
Their adventures lead to encounters with Smaug the dragon, giant spiders, trolls, and goblins. I try to read some of the classic's to my kids, but have to say there are a lot of great current books out that will make for great classics in the future.
Readers of different ages appreciate the story on different levels.  Following its publication in 1943, Saint-Exupery disappeared over the Mediterranean on a wartime mission in 1944. The morality tale was illustrated by long time collaborator Quentin Blake (from 1998 edition). There have been several adaptations of the story, most notably the Walt Disney animation in 1953.
Children and adults delight in the complex plot and well-drawn characters and can relate to Harry, who faces the usual problems of growing up in addition to facing an evil foe.
The book's cover and jacket are also colorable.Appealing to all ages, SECRET GARDEN is the original and first book by Johanna Basford.
As the garden blossoms once more, the characters hope to physically and emotionally heal themselves. A film adaptation came out in 1971 starring Gene Wilder and a second one was released in 2005 with Johnny Depp. One of the great characters of children’s literature, Toad is a lovable rogue but his conceit and restless nature leads him into trouble, requiring his friends to rescue him.
The characters of the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, and the Queen of Hearts have entered popular culture.
I am going to the library tomorrow to see if I can find some of these books you have listed on the site.
