Top Ten Children’s Books From E. L. Adams

Top Ten Children’s Books
1.      Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne – a classic from my childhood, and the first book I remember my parents reading aloud to me.
2.       The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame – another classic. I loved the TV show, too.
3.       The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson – I was quite a bit older when this came out, but it’s the sort of thing I’d have adored when I was little. It’s a really clever story with a great rhyme scheme – great for reading aloud!
4.      The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling – goes without saying, really!
5.      Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll – Carroll is a genius. A mad genius, admittedly, but the Alice books are fantastic.
6.      Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the BFG, Matilda…pretty much all of Roald Dahl’s books!
7.      Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney – these books are hilarious. They’re cleverly illustrated with appeal to kids of all ages, and I’m unashamed to say I enjoy them even at the age of 21!
8.      How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell
9.      The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan
10.  The Cat in the Hat by Dr Seuss – another classic!
The Puppet Spell

Unlike her rebellious sister Lucinda, fifteen-year-old Lexa prefers to spend her free time playing video games, fighting the forces of evil with her partner-in-crime Marlon. But when Lucinda steals an invisibility potion from their uncle’s storeroom, she unleashes chaos into their lives. Lexa and Marlon find themselves catapulted into a world far more dangerous than any video game, full of misleading illusions, sinister Conjurors and deadly Fey, and threatened by a man with a grudge known as the Puppeteer. Accompanied only by Lexa’s uncle’s unreliable (and rather dangerous) Chimera, Lexa and Marlon must navigate this world to find Lucinda- before they too fall under the spell of the puppet master…

Author E.L. Adams

Emma is a 21-year-old author from Birmingham, UK. When she isn’t reading voraciously, studying, or taking every opportunity to travel, she can be found in front of her writing desk.

Having aspired to be a writer since the age of ten, Emma aims to give life to her (admittedly bizarre) daydreams, through creating weird and wonderful alternative worlds. Her debut novel THE PUPPET SPELL, published in January 2013 by Rowanvale Books, is a fantasy tale for young adults and the young at heart, inspired by her lifelong love of traditional fantasy, mythology, and video games.

When not living the crazy life of an English Literature with Creative Writing student at Lancaster University, Emma reluctantly resides in the attic in her parents’ house in Birmingham. Local rumour is that she is working on a dark fantasy series for mature young adults featuring demons and other assorted night terrors.
