The first book Prince William’s wife recommended was “The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark” by Jill Tomlinson. “I loved this book as a little girl and hearing my own children read it brought back so many wonderful memories,” said Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge. This book is about a comforting story that would help children face their fears, according to the Duchess. The other book recommended by the mother of Prince George, 8, Prince Louis, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 6, is “Stig Of The Dump,” by Clive King. “As a child, I loved spending time outdoors, making dens, digging, discovering and making things out of anything and everything,” confides Kate Middleton, the mother of three. “I don’t know if that’s why my father recommended this book to me or if this book inspired my imagination, but I have never forgotten this brilliant book and the values it teaches,” added the wife of Prince William. Note that this book is about little Barney and his friend Stig and their series of adventures.
