Children's Top Ten Favourite Books

As we are a book loving family and books play a large part of our education and free time. I though I would ask the children to update their lists of 10 favourite books or series. I have these on my side bar for some of the children  and looked recently and wondered 'are they still the same?'

Interestingly enough some are the same and some are different for each child. The other significant  fact is that we definitely have some family favourites that we ALL love to read.
I haven't linked to any of these books but they are all (I think in print)

So on with the children's lists:
