Does any one have some fresh title suggestions for a boy (4) who loves books. He is still very fond of picture books but I have read him a couple of My Naughty Little Sister books and he loves those too. Have done all the usual favourites; Julia Donaldson, Little Red Train, Alfie etc

My son really liked "Jim and the Beanstalk" at that age. I think it was by Raymond Briggs. Inspired by Jack and the Beanstalk, but an original work.
