Oh yes! Loved ballet shoes! Wanted to be a ballerina after reading that one.

And Heidi. Also reminded me of another book I loved "treasures of the snow". Really lovely story.

I also liked Eskimo Nell which I 'borrowed' from my parents secret library :D

Mallory Towers :) I loved those books! My friend & I would stay over at each others house & sneak midnight feasts.....we were desperate to go to boarding school!! Glad I didn't though :)

Anne of Green Gables series is another classic for me & all Roald Dahl, especially James & the Giant Peach.

When I went to secondary school I was introduced to Judy Blume....Are you there God it's me Margaret.....quality!! Back then I was desperately trying to increase my bust, oh how times have changed :D
