Ahead of World Book Day on Thursday, March 5, we have asked some mums and dads from the local area what their little bookworms enjoy reading.
From the classic tales of Roald Dahl to The Brilliant World of Tom Gates by Liz Pichon, the Key Stage 2 pupils are fans of authors spanning many generations.
Many of them have become devotees of a series of books featuring the same central character, such as the adventures of Tom in Beast Quest or the challenges faced by heroine Darrell Rivers in Mallory Towers.
On Thursday, millions of children across the country will celebrate national World Book Day by going to school dressed as their favourite literary character and most will receive a £1 book token to put towards their next purchase.
Hopefully our top ten list can inspire more young readers out there to try a new author and lose themselves in a good read. We'll be compiling lots of other book-themed lists throughout the week.
Here are the top ten choices for Key Stage 2 children - in no particular order
1. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
2. Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney
3. The Beast Quest series by Adam Blade
4. The Malory Towers series by Enid Blyton
5. The Tracy Beaker series by Jacqueline Wilson
6. The Tom Gates series by Liz Pichon
7. The Clarice Bean series by Lauren Child
8. The Horrid Henry series by Francesca Simon
9. The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
10. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis
