.Well. If I hadn't read to them every night down the last 9 years, they wouldn't have loved books so much, now just wanting to read themselves in bed for yonks....

I always read to my two at bed time and they both love reading now. It was quality shared time that I, and I hope they will always treasure.

Robert Muchamore and Chris Ryan. Our 11 y.o. has raced through every one and now we're stuck for the next reading craze. Suggestions, anyone?

My six year old daughter is addicted to old Beano and Dandy annuals - brings a stack home from car boot sales and charridy shops every week, dozens of the ruddy things everywhere.

Our favourite new character is Fiddle O'Diddle the oirish leprechaun t' be sure ;)

For my youngest the reading books in bed to himself came only this year ... and I still keep getting so excited when I see him doing it that I can't bring myself to tell him its time to turn out the light and go to sleep.

I'll have that bottle back. I had never heard of Uncle the Elephant!

Having looked it up, I will remember him now!

I've always liked Quentin Blake, we had a couple of his books as children. I think I'd rather like to be drawn by him, he would get my tously hair just right.

Try Stephen Leather - his books might be little bit "too" adult so you might want to pre-read. Still not exactly War & Peace, but a step up from Ryan and Clancy.
