Booktrust has revealed a list of 100 books it says children should read before they turn 14.

Winnie the Pooh, The Famous Five and The Hungry Caterpillar are three of the classics that made it onto the list.

But some favourites are missing including Roald Dahl's Charlie the Chocolate Factory, RL Stine's Goosebumps and David Walliam's Gangsta Granny.

Claire Shanahan from Booktrust said: "We know there will be some debate around the list, and we welcome it!"
