Top children's books some people remember reading

From dovegreyreader comes this Daily Mail list of the top 50 children’s books . I've read all but nine of these and four of the unread ones are by Julia Donaldson. Just shows how these lists of the 'best' films, TV programmes, songs etc. are slanted towards the most recently read, viewed or listened to. I think perhaps four books on that list would be in my own personal top fifty. You could try guessing them, if you liked.
