I haven’t read children’s books in a long tine but looking for some now that I have kids of my own. My son really likes Dr. Seuss right now.

I loved reading growing up, it's very difficult to choose just one author!
I enjoyed Dr Seuss when I was very young, and authors such as C S Lewis, Lewis Carroll, Jacqueline Wilson, Lemony Snicket, J K Rowling, and many others when I was old enough to read novels.

There are a few that I will still go back and read now I'm in my 20s because the stories are so vivid and exciting

Erin Hunter. I've mentioned them everywhere else on the forums, so I may as well drop their name here. :lol2:

As I've said already, their work is very descriptive and immersive. The worlds they build are so vibrant, and the characters feel diverse and interesting. Their work focuses primarily on the lives and societies of wildlife. My favorite work of theirs, and favorite book series period, remains to be Warriors. It focuses on clans of wild cats that live in defined territories while battling over food and borders. It does get graphic, and there are often plots involving murder, so it may not be best suited for very young readers, but it does entertain many people ranging from grade school to college.

The following they've built is mighty impressive, and their books feel unique to other works I've read. I definitely recommend checking them out.

Hans Christian Andersen ever since I was really little (like 5). E.B. White, ever since I read Charlotte's Web when I was 8.

When I was really little, my brother and I were obsessed with Dr. Seuss. His books are great for getting little kids excited about reading, and its fun to say all those silly rhymes out loud.

Roald Dahl
Dick King-Smith
Robin Jarvis
Judy Blume

There were countless series with multiple authors that I adored - but those top two are who I’m currently attempting to get my 7 year old son into reading. I just loved them.

When I learnt to read well enough, I had a lot of Willard price stories. They were always entertaining.

Roald Dahl! He apparently has about 20 children's books I didn't know about. I read the Charlie Bucket books when I was a youngster. Most of his children's books are emotional yet fun and adventurous! I also like that the main characters usually go on adventures and form bonds with whoever they go on adventures with. Defnitely recommend.

The covers are also fun and colorful and follow the same art style. The illustrator did a great job. Image

As a child (and as a teen and eventually as an adult to be honest) I enjoyed Eugene Trivizas books.
What is funny/strange, is that I know that most of his books have been translated into other languages but haven't heard any non Greek person talking about him. Oh well...

I love Barbara Parks. The Junie B. Jones books are what first got me into reading, so I will always have a sentimental connection to her books.
