Hi everyone, post your favourite classic books for 7 to 10 year olds. Perhaps they were your favourite when you were young? I hope to buy the Famous Five series for my ds1 soon, in a box set.
As a child i loved Milly Molly Mandy and Malory Towers. I plan to reread them soon.
Any other suggestions??

I remember reading Riddle of the Trumalar? Playing Beatie Bow. Once, mum let me order from book club in yr 5 (1985) and i ordered a book called Duck For Danger. I always remember that book. I might look it up on Amazon.

I'm currently reading Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix to my 7 year olds and they are enthralled. We started the philosophers stone last December. They love hp now (thankfully otherwise I would have had to disown them!)
They also enjoy Paul Jennings- but I haven't shown them his older un-series books. I will when they are 10 or so.
Definitely Enid Blyton and Judy Blume books.
I think most of my favourites have already been mentioned. I second all those said above!

Enid Blyton was a favourite of mine. Famous 5, Secret 7, Naughtiest Girl in the School, Faraway Tree.
Judy Blume, although probably more the pre-teen stage. I really want to buy copies of some of her books again.
Colin Thiele. February Dragon was a favourite of mine and I still have my copy and read it every now and then.
Harry Potter came later in my life, but I can't wait to introduce my kids to the wonderful world of Harry Potter.
There are loads more. I was a major bookworm as a kid!

In regards to the Enid Blyton books I recently bought some for my cousin (7yo at the time) and there are so many imposter books now released under the "Enid Blyton Collection" name or something. It made me really sad that I couldn't just buy Enid Blyton books easily. They've added on extra books to a lot of her series/series's? (Not sure what's correct) Does this frustrate/annoy anyone else?
