Books that have been read by families involved in the project at different times include the BFG, The Twits, Danny Champion of the World, George's Marvellous Medicine all written by Roald Dahl. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, Tom's Midnight Garden by Phillippa Pearce and poetry collections.
