Harry Potter author JK Rowling tops a new list of children’s favourite books which is dominated by titles which have been made in to films.

Six of the author’s books about wizardry feature in a list compiled by online education company Renaissance Learning.

The Potter series has a reading age of 11-12, but is popular among children as young as six.

Other books on the list were similarly advanced.

The study looked at the reading habits of more than 400,00 children in 2,000 primary and secondary schools in the UK, with children being asked to vote for their favourites.

The top books across all age groups were, in joint first place: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins.

Fourth place was shared by Inheritance (Christpher Paolini) and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
