The Federation of Children’s Book Groups is celebrating their fiftieth anniversary.

Passionate about books and reading and getting children and books together, they decided as part of their celebrations they should compile a list of some of their favourite books from the last fifty years.

While they have included a book by each of the Children’s Laureates and some titles have been award winners, the books are ‘primarily ones that for many of their members have stood the test of time and remain firm favourites amongst adults and children alike.’

I am delighted that The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch has been included in the list.
