What is your favourite book and why?

I have always loved reading and will often reread books I've enjoyed, it's like revisiting an old friend, and this definitely applies to one of  my favourite childhood books, which is Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. 

I can remember reading about Alice and her magical adventures into a land of wonder and the many characters she met along the way for the first time and how the brilliant character and setting descriptions brought her to life. I loved how curious she was and how fearless.  

I enjoyed reading this classic with my children and I am now looking forward to be able to share it with my grandson too. 

What is your favourite memory from school?

I love reading and I fondly remember spending hours in my school reading corner, sitting on a cushion on the floor reading a book that I had spent ages choosing. My favourite teacher was Mrs Oliver, I'm sure it was due to her (and my parents) love of reading that I developed my love of books too. 

I also love food, so I think another one of my favourite memories I have from school is the school dinners, I went to a very small primary school and children were chosen to be 'servers' at lunchtime, I remember how special if felt to serve drinks and puddings to my classmates.
