That’s the ones.  I just remember always having to re-shelve them.  FOREVER re-shelving them.  But they were nice & big & took up their own shelf - so they always looked neat.  Like encyclopedias.

I like the Narnia books…I only read them when I got older though.  It seems we didn’t have a lot of required reading in my school.

Now that I think on it - there was never a lot of guidance for reading until they began excelerated readers (where you get a list of books - read the books & then take a quiz on the book for points, the points are exchanged for gifts/prizes). 

Maybe that’s why they started it.

Maeg I LOVED the Redwall Abbey books, I still read them now in fact hehehehe! All Roald Dahl books rocked. I also loved the Uncle books, the ones about the elephant? Written by JP Martin I believe, a guy from Scarborough I discovered recently! The Farthing wood books were quite good too.

Dahl was pretty cool.  Always just a touch sinister…it was different.
