Book Corner

I’ve been enjoying the Book Corner series by Lucy Mangan in the Guardian, particularly this weeks entry about Antonia Forest’s Autumn Term, the start of the series about the Marlow family. Lucy’s job of recounting the essential books for a child’s bookshelf is one I would love to have, not least because she and I have many similar ideas.

I have an enormous collection of girls school stories left from my childhood, enhanced by those books I added in my 20s as my book buying budget increased. Of the Antonia Forest books, I think I prefer the non-school stories, but they, along with Arthur Ransom, Noel Streatfeild, EJ Oxenham et al are making great ‘end of pregnancy’ reading.
