This is a question Books

We love books. Tell us about your favourite books and authors, and why they are so good. And while you're at it - having dined out for years on the time I threw Dan Brown out of a train window - tell us who to avoid.

i loved Richard Scarry books when I was a kid. Awesome illustrations, and characters like Lowly Worm, Huckle Cat and Rudolf von Flugel.

Forever a favourite!
His books are classics; I recently found a massive print with all his characters on it that had been made when I was a kid back in the 70s and bought it for my friend's three-year-old daughter. Every night before she goes to sleep, she'll point to each character and tell her parents who everyone is and what they do. It's nice to see how it endures.
