    I remember watching Rik Mayall read George’s Marvellous Medicine on Jackanory when I was a kid. He was brilliant and so is the book.

    Do you mean The Weathermonger (1968), Heartsease (1969) and The Devil’s Children (1970)by Peter Dickinson? I had those – really enjoyed them. Televised as The Changes.

    Yeah that’s it, the weathermonger I remember really enjoying it, but can’t properly remember the story.

    Eagle of the ninth. Still a favourite which I re-read every few years.

    Lot of the same, Hobbit, Famous Five and Adventure Series, the Willard Price books, Anne Mcaffrey Dragon Series, Stig of the Dump (Amazing book), Watership Down, and very much Alan Garner, the Wierdstone and Moon Of Gomrath sparked a fascination with celtic mythology and british folklore that still endures.

    Also Gerald Durrel, My family and other animals. I think my parents must have hated those books because they where responsible for a lot of spiders and slow worms finding there way into the house.
