Chip Kidd on Charlotte's Web: This was the first book I read that was really about the power of design and typography. I would say that Charlotte’s typographic web-o-grams represent the first depiction of a successful ad campaign in children’s literature.
Roald Dahl tops list of teachers' favourite authors, while Julia Donaldson's The Gruffalo wins best children's book
The BFG was one of my favourite books to read as a child. The way it was written and the way the characters are made are hard to copy which makes it a great book. The illustrations are amazing and the colour choice are appropriate too.
