I loved the magical story of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis.  Aslan the lion and Mr Tumnus were great characters and it was a great story about the battle between good v’s evil.

My favourite is We’re going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. It made me realise adults didn’t know what they were doing either!

Valeria Liberati, Bilingual Junior Marketing Executive

I used to love The Adventures of Pinocchio by C. Collodi  The novel is about a wooden puppet crafted by Mastro Geppetto, who after various misadventures he becomes a real child. I really liked the talking cricket who was quite underestimated, but throughout the story, he’s a vital figure for the  main character’s development.

I read My Family and other Animals by Gerald Durrell  in High School and it was the first time I let my imagination be taken over by the words on the pages. I felt as though I was there in Corfu experiencing what the author experienced growing up. It ignited my passion for reading, I literally have withdrawal symptoms if I am not reading something!
