The Narnia books
Horrible History books
Lots of other random factual books.
Fairy tales and nursery rhymes (Probably explains why I like Discworld stuff so much)

But my father also told these amazing bedtime stories about us as superheroes and they were these wonderfully empowering, almost feminist tales, which was lovely. I think he wrote a few down too. I must go dig around for them.
I adored all the boarding school series. My sister and mum and I would have midnight feasts in the blanket fort we built in the dead centre of the living room. We'd leave it up for weeks and guests would have to carefully avoid the sprawling, schizophrenic thing. No one would have enough linen or blankets or clothes pegs for ages. Ahhh...so lovely

Then my dad discouraged me, saying that JKR would like to write her OWN books xD
Had I written more than half a page it would have been possible to make a fanfiction out of it, even if it IS a nonsense one made by a nine year old.
