Author Michael Pryor asked me to write about my favourite book from childhood. Choosing a favourite book is impossible; would it be The Jungle Book or The Silver Chair, The Lord of the Rings or Harriet the Spy? In the end, I wrote about a book I realised powerfully influences my adult writing.
It’s worth checking out Michael’s website. The guest posts on favourite books are fascinating and I love that Michael feels it necessary to list his favourite dinosaur (Triceratops). He’s right, this is vital information and I’m now racking my brains for my favourite dinosaur. I think it has to be one of the many Australian ones, such as Eric the opalised plesiosaur.
