On the Books: Winnie the Pooh is Britain's best-loved children's book

Winnie the Pooh tops a recent poll of Britain’s best-loved children’s books from the past 150 years. Oddly enough, neither JK Rowling’s nor Philip Pullman’s books made the list — maybe different Harry Potter books split the vote? Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which just barely made the date cutoff, landed at number two, followed by The Very Hungry CaterpillarThe Hobbit, and The Gruffalo. [The Telegraph]

People of Nerdfighteria: You’re gonna want to read this.

EW can reveal exclusively that YA rock star John Green has been tapped to headline a panel at BookCon — which is sort of like Comic-Con, but for, you know, actual books — all about The Fault in Our Stars‘s journey from page to screen. The panel, scheduled for May 31, will also feature TFIOS‘s film team, including Fox 2000 Pictures president Elizabeth Gabler, director Josh Boone, producer Wyck Godfrey, and screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. EW’s own YA expert Sara Vilkomerson will moderate the event — which will also feature a sneak peek at footage from the upcoming film adaptation of TFIOS, which opens June 6.
