Cerys Matthews' six best books

Cerys Matthews was the lead singer with the Nineties band Catatonia. She is on the judging panel of a new category of this year’s Dylan Thomas Prize, the Sony Reader Award For Unpublished Writers.

She named her six best books for the Daily Express. One title on the list:
Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren

This series was a favourite of mine when I was growing up. I picked up a copy of one of the books recently and it was interesting to look at them again through an adult’s eyes. She was quite a character and I think she would appeal just as much to children today.
Read about the other books on the list.
