And now for a  list from the first Library of our entrants – Central Children’s Library, Sheffield.   As explained in my introductory post, there may be some 9+ entries amongst the suggestions, but Alexis who thought each age group could have a list of their own, actually went ahead and did just that.  So effectively people you’re getting two for the price of one – you should all consider yourselves rather lucky if you ask me…:
