With some eye catching displays, Shepherd’s Bush Library challenged its readers to see how many of the 100 children’s fiction books they had read.

Teachers voted on the children’s fiction books they thought every child should have read before leaving primary school.

Top 100 lists are always popular with readers and provide an excellent opportunity for staff to show off just how deep our collection really runs, with books that span the range of time.

While you can find the full list of titles here, it should come as no surprise that Roald Dahl was extremely popular with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory coming in at number 1 and Matilda at number 4.
