What books did you read when you were a child?
My mum had to read The Sneeches and other stories by Dr Seuss to me every single day! The first book I read and fell in love with was The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis.
If you could be a storybook character who would you be?
I feel like I already am Max from Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. I know what it's like to feel angry, how to grow a forest in my room and sail away to be the King of my own jungle. But I also know that there is no place like home.
What is the best thing about reading?
The best thing about reading is that a really good book can take you a wonderful secret Neverland that your soul somehow just recognises. That's one of my favourite places to be!
What is your all-time favourite book?
My favourite all time book is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It's a fable about following your dream.
