We asked some of our authors and performers to recall their favourite books when they were growing up. Here’s what they said.
Simon Pegg: Stig of the Dump by Clive King
Jonny Zucker: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl (when Jonny was 8 years old, he had the good fortune to meet Roald Dahl)
Martin Freeman: Animal Farm by George Orwell
Holly Smale: Anne of Green Gables by L M Montgomery
Amanda Abbington: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
Alex Scarrow: Carrie by Stephen King (don’t you have to sleep with the light on, Alex?!)
James Mayhew: Moominland Midwinter, by Tove Jansson
How many of these have you read? And what’s YOUR favourite book?
