We love books  and the boys are allowed to ask for books for Christmas according to our mantra:

Christmas list rules

So this is their wish list of books.


boys books

Other books they have enjoyed this past year:


  1. Percy Jackson Pbk 5-Book Boxed Set (Percy Jackson & the Olympians), we are huge Percy Jackson Fans and have enjoyed reading through the series together.
  2. Roald Dahl 15 Book Box Set (Slipcase) Includes Matilda, Witches, The Twits, Fantastic Mr Fox, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, Georges Marvellous Medicine, The BFG, Danny the Champion of the World…. After reading these as a family, Mini has started to read them independently and his current favorite is Georges Marvelous Medicine.
