50 Books Every Child Should Read

One of the better lists of books every child should read, courtesy of The Independent.  I like the recommendation that children should be reading 50 books a year!  That's an aggressive reading schedule.  Even in my best years of reading as an adult, I wasn't quite reading that much.  However, I do agree with one of the comments, WTH, No Roald Dahl?  Those were definitely my favorites as a kid.  I still remember reading James and Giant Peach and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator.  After 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and War of the Worlds, those probably kept me reading more than anything else (with some diversions into Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators).
