A message from Julia Eccleshare:

'Each of the carefully selected titles has earned its place on each publisher’s list because it has inspired previous generations to become passionate readers. The stories have already been passed down from one generation to another and been the starting point for many other stories. All these classics selected by Lovereading4kids are the perfect way of reading the old and the new - and loving both.  More titles will be added over time so you can come back again and again and indulge yourself and your children in whichever format suits you best at the time.’

Adventures in Imagination with Puffin Classics:

A Puffin Book will stay with you forever.  Maybe you'll read it again and again, or perhaps years from now you'll suddenly remember the moment it made you laugh or cry or simply see things differently.  Adventurers big and small, rebels out to change their world, even a mouse with a dream and a spider who can spell - these are the characters who make stories that last a lifetime.

Frances Lincoln The Classics:

The Frances Lincoln Classic range, all in hardback format, are each exquisitely illustrated by notable artists including Jane Ray and Emma Chichester Clark.
