It's Children's Book Week! Find out which classic children's book character you're really, most like.

Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.

 Dr Seuss

This week we celebrate Children's Book Week! We've been digging through some of our old childhood favourites and pondering all those classic characters who we fell in love with all those years ago. Whether it was Charlie Bucket, Winnie the Pooh or the three brave siblings from The Railway Children, the amazing characters we met through those first-adored stories became our heroes long before we even knew what rockstars or footballers were.

When we were little we didn't want to be rich or famous, we wanted to be the King of the Wild Things like Maurice Sendak's Max, or a great friend like EB White's Charlotte the spider, or perhaps a little mischievous like Peter Rabbit. But how many of us have grown up to be like those beloved childhood literary heroes? Have you?

Time to find out...
