Seems to me that I have forgotten many titles of the kid books I read during those days. But I enjoyed the ones that had fragmented diagram cuttings that you had to rearrange till they made perfect pictures on every page.

I always make sure to read "The Tiger who came to tea" with all the kids I've looked after. I love it and they love it!

I absolutely loved Mallory Towers by Enid Blyton. I read it back in first grade, and it sure helped me form an idea of how school works in general and the different types of people we meet at school. Helped deal with small situations we might come up with in life, and by using Darrell Rivers as a muse, Enid Blyton shaped her personality beautifully in the seven terms of boarding school. Definitely a must read series!

As a young child, my favorite story was Mr. Pine's Purple House. I have no idea who wrote it. It was the story of a man who wanted his plain white house to look different from the other houses on the block so he painted it purple. Of course his neighbors all do the same thing, changing their plain white houses to other colors. I remember that I felt his disappointment at not being able to stand at from the crowd. such a simple yet powerful story for me.

I loved Enid Blyton, Hard boys and Nancy Drew, Archie comics and various Penguin books. Mystery, Suspense and non fiction were my favourite themes.
