Bookseller Angus & Robertson recently surveyed 15,000  Australian school  kids, aged 5 to 17, to find out their favourite books. Not surprisingly, given its dominance of the bestseller lists over the past few years,  Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series came out on top, with the final novel in the Harry Potter series coming in in second place.
