Children's Fiction

One of our assignments is to do with using children's fiction in the classroom - so we have to read 3 children's books as part of it. I'm really enjoying discovering - or in some cases rediscovering - some of these books. Authors such as Michael Morpurgo, Bernard Ashley, Anne Fine, Frank Cottrell Boyce .... I'm definitely going to be reading more then the minimum 3.

If anyone has other suggestions for authors I should be trying, please let me know.

Have you read the Wizard of Earthsea
trilogy by Ursula Le Guin. It captivated me as an adult when I read it whilst living in orkney in the late seventies and did the same for my three children when I read it to them twenty years later

No, I've never read those. I'll add that to my 'must read' list. Thanks.
