For the Guardian, she named her top ten books about running away, including:
Peter Pan by JM BarrieRead about the other stories on the list.
Who doesn't dream of flying out of a window at one time or another? This wonderful, exciting adventure makes the idea seem possible and takes readers on an unforgettable journey. It's a true classic, with fantastic characters. The ticking crocodile is my favourite. I think Peter Pan is the perfect story, with something for everyone, and a poignant proviso – that proceeds go to Great Ormond Street Hospital in perpetuity.
Peter Pan is on John Mullan's list of ten of the best pirates in fiction.
