Book Blogger Hop: 16th-22nd March 2018

Question:  Who is your favorite children's books author and why?

Answer: Enid Blyton. Why? Her books made me fall in love with reading before the age of nine. I still have all the books of hers that I read and even though they are rather dated by todays standards, I'm still very fond of them. The Faraway Tree was one of my earlier favourites before discovering the Mallory Towers, St Clare & The Famous Five  series . All These books were escapism as I read about the highs and lows of living away from home and the excitement of the forbidden midnight feasts and magical discoveries. 
If I was to ask the same question to my eleven year old son, his reply would be the writing colaboration called Erin Hunter. He loves the Warrior Cat books and has read twenty seven of them in the past eighteen months. Any authors books that entice and encourage children to read for fun is a favourite of mine.
