I’ve read two on the list, Harry Potter of course, and the Invention of Hugo Cabret. It’s a wonderful picture story book.

I think the subject matter of The Deathly Hallows is just a bit beyond ‘a child’s book". Not sure what the definition of ‘child’ is in UK.

Aw, geez, the children’s category again. Harry Potter really has nothing in common with scary snowmen or these other “children’s” books.
