Best selling children’s books of all time

What is the best selling children’s book of all time?

Our sister site (?daughter site) today posted the top 20. The number one book has sold 14,000,000 copies since it was introduced as one of the first Little Golden Books in 1942. That is 5 million more than the next placed book (Charlotte’s Web). It featured this rather naughty puppy.


When it comes to dogs and Little Golden Books, I must say I preferred the more adventursome Scuppers, the Sailor Dog


or the more independent Mr Dog, the Dog who Belonged to Himself


The wiltjunior list  has no Noddys, Wild Things or Pooh Bears. No Far Away Trees, Wind in the Willows, or Narnia’s. No puddings, wombats or possums – in fact no marsupials of any sort.

What book would you add? Let us know in the comments.
