  5. Hello Everyone, This is my first post, and I am making a list of my favourite top 8 20th century books. 1. The Traveller in Time: Excellent read, sounds rubbish, but is the contrary. (1985) 2. The Runaways: A children's classic, some people may remember reading it in their childhood. (1987) 3. All that Katy Did: A collection of 'Katy' books. 4. Anna Keeps Her Promise: Translated from it's original language, this a very good read. (1987) 5. Ballet shoes for Anna: A lovely ballet story, written by Noel Streatfeild (1983). 6. The Borrowers: A lovely classic for me, and a good read. (1953) 7. Fecility Dances: Another ballet book (1938) 8. Tim and the Hidden People: (series) a excellent series of lovely books, which are harder to get hold of, we have them all. (date?) Comments?
