Top 200 Books for Children - 1999

Add to my lists | Print this list

Back in September 1999, The Express (a UK newspaper) published an article listing the top 300 fiction choices for adults, together with top 200 books for children. I have kept hold of the pages from the newspaper, and thought I would make an LoB list to check my progress.

For the Top 300 Fiction Choices for Adults, go here: http://www.listsofbests.com/list/78438-top-300-fiction-choices-for-adults-1999#

I have no idea who chose the titles mentioned in this list, the article does not mention the selection process.
