I’ve been meaning to buy this book for a while now, and today I did because I opened up the book to a random page, and what was the book featured? Jane Hissey’s ‘Old Bear’
I remembered it so clearly from my childhood and was immediately charmed and it put a smile on my face for the rest of the day. ‘1001 books you must read before you grow up’ (so much more charming than ‘before you die’ is part of the 1001…. series and is a great book to delve into every now and again where you can reminisce, travel back to your childhood or discover a classic you never even knew about. The book is updated ever few years so also has contemporary titles in there such as Harry Potter and Jacqueline Wilson’s books. Fantastic.
