People of my generation were all Archie fans so I feel Archie Comics must be on this list

A story on how the Browns meet a marmalade-loving bear. The chapters are filled with humorous mishaps and adventures of the little bear with his new family. This book started my fascination with the world of imagination and reading

The story revolves around prince Teppic from a kingdom called Djelibeybi, and the hurdles he has to face after coming in power following his father’s death. This was the first Pratchett I ever read, and my world changed forever

A moving story of sacrifice and triumph, where human scientists establish a relationship with intelligent life forms. This marked the beginning of my continuing science-fiction journey
