Staff picks from Foyles Birmingham Grand Central
We've been picking some of our childhood favourite books here at Foyles Birmingham.
Mrs Pepperpot Stories - Alf Proysen
I still remember how amazed I was that Mrs Pepperpot could shrink to the actual size of a pepperpot! She had the best adventures.
Elidor - Alan Garner
To paraphrase C.S. Lewis: Today you are old enough to start reading fairy tales again. Start with Alan Garner, the sleeping giant of english fantasy and folk tales.
Wolf Brother - Michelle Paver
A rich and deeply atmospheric adventure; the ancient world of wolf brother is so real you can almost smell the pine needles, feel the chill of the far north and hear the whisper of the spirit world.
