Survey: Roald Dahl books more popular than Potter
#1
A new survey's found Roald Dahl remains the most popular children's author among young adults.

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling is only the fourth most popular author.
Second and third places were taken by C.S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia series and Peter Pan creator J.M. Barrie.

Prolific English children's writer Enid Blyton who wrote the Famous Five series and the Noddy books only made tenth place.

Perhaps I didn't read it carefully enough, but it didn't say who conducted the survey or who specifically they surveyed. "Young adults"? I suspect if they conduct the same survey years from now the Potter books will come out far ahead. Which is no criticism of Roald Dahl or C.S. Lewis, but even with movies based on their books, they just don't have anywhere near the franchise Harry Potter has.

I had trouble tracking down the survey's source myself. I may try again later this week.
