Seven of the best classic children's books

Philip Womack is the author of two critically acclaimed novels for children, The Other Book and The Liberators.

One of his favorite classic children's books, as told to the Telegraph:
My favourite children’s books are one by one making the journey to my adult shelves in London. The first to do so was TH White’s The Once and Future King. This humane, wise, witty, heartbreaking account of the Arthurian cycle was a constant companion of mine during the hot summer I was 12.

I loved it so much I would bring it to cricket matches and would snatch a page or two between overs.

The Once and Future King is one of Lev Grossman's five top fantasy books.
