For the mummies and daddies out there...

what is your favourite childrens book that you secretly love but dont admit it. E.g. The BFG or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory etc. I need a fairly easy book as i have to buy and understand the french equivalent.

thanks for all the responses guys. i think i will probably go for "im going on a bear hunt" because i loved it and i should be able to read it and understand. i kinda have to have some idea of the story and i used to love this one as a kid. I would go for the enid blyton ones but i never read those as a kid.

Harry Potter!

Room on a Broom

Has lots of repetition (like a chorus)

I don't know whether the rhyming would work in translation though

not now bernard

yayyyy you chose mine a good choice and should translate easily.
