1 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Roald Dahl

There's an early version of the book with a character named Miranda Piker. The early Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had 15 kids. - Ilovestephanie

Roald is d best... Nobody can match him in his story endings...

RIP Roald Dahl

1916 - 1990

2 Green Eggs and Ham - Dr. Seuss

I remember this book I ripped it in the school library on purpose the librarian was mad at me and then she taped the rips in the book and banned me for taking out books for a month

I had this book I ripped it up on purpose them my parents took the book away since I kept ripping it up, they were not happy with me, I was 4 or 5 when I did this

I remember this book I remember when my grade 1 class did have green eggs and ham once as well - trains45

26 Adventure Time - Ryan North
27 Double Fudge - Judy Blume
28 The Giver - Lois Lowry

Love this book BUT NOT FOR KIDS!

Actually, I believe that a kid should be able to read a book once they can understand it. So as soon as they start to understand the words in the book, then they should be allowed to read it. This book projects nothing wrong and if there was, the child would know it. If they don't know that whatever it is is wrong, then they shouldn't be able to even read it yet. - JoMama163
