Looking at it more closely I noticed that the description for Twilight is just a description and no commentary. Maybe the contributor didn't know why it was included on this list. LOL.
I caught an animated version of 'The Gruffalo' the other day (a friend downloaded it) and it was charming. I haven't read the book! (Although Mr Bear - seven years old - knew it from school.)
Twilight isn't the only book which has just a description what happens and no commentary, noticed the same at least for The Happy Prince of Wilde, that it only recounts what happens.
And while many have objective view to the matters there are a couple of more personal "how I felt reading the book" accounts, and some authors picking their favorite books.
Also I felt some descriptions were slightly misleading while correct, and I started to wonder if that explains some of the weirder age grouping, that the age grouping is done based on the entries and not by contributors...
Several entries also have short lists "by the same author" or "of this-and-this theme" which were pretty cool, except when they got repetitive (e.g. every Roald Dahl entry listed five other Dahl books...)
But anyway, the book looks good and contents are interesting.
And I just love having it as a real, solid book.
