Business Insider

The British reading and writing charity Booktrust has released an "ultimate list" of the 100 children's books every kid should read by the time he's 14. I t's a pretty good breakdown of key reading material for anyone who is growing up.

It also differs considerably from   The New York Public Library's new list  of 100 greatest children's books, which was released late last month and faced considerable controversy over "missing" titles.

Here are the top 100 kids' books, according to Booktrust:
