1001 CHILDRENS BOOKS YOU MUST READ BEFORE YOU GROW UP is the perfect introduction to the very best books of children's fiction: those books that have a special place in the heart of every reader. It introduces a wonderfully rich world of literature to parents and their children‚ offering both new titles and much loved classics that many generations have read and enjoyed. From wordless picture books and simple‚ illustrated story books through to hard-hitting and edgy teenage fiction‚ the titles featured in this book reflect the wealth of children's fiction available today.

Uniquely‚ children's books deal both in words and pictures. So‚ whatever the reading age or ability‚ there is something for everyone. Among the 1001 titles‚ there are national and international classics as well as works by the most well-known‚ successful‚ and "literary" contemporary writers for each age group. Browsing the titles in 1001 CHILDRENS BOOKS YOU MUST READ BEFORE YOU GROW UP will take you on a journey of discovery into fantasy‚ adventure‚ history‚ contemporary life‚ and much more. These books will enable you to travel to some of the most famous worlds imagined‚ such as Narnia‚ Middle Earth‚ and Hogwart's School. And the route taken may be pretty strange‚ too. You may fall down a rabbit hole‚ as Alice does on her way to Wonderland‚ or go through the back of a wardrobe to reach the snowy wastes of Narnia.

Organized broadly by age group - 0 to 3‚ 3+‚ 5+‚ 8+‚ and teenage fiction - 1001 CHILDRENS BOOKS YOU MUST READ BEFORE YOU GROW UP is an ideal reference for parents keen to introduce their children to the wonderful world of books and for all adults to revisit the favorite books of their own childhood. Illustrated with original cover art where possible‚ each chapter presents the books in order of publication to give a sense of the rich tradition of children's fiction and illustraion from Aesop's Fables to Neil Gaiman's THE GRAVEYARD BOOK.
