  Potter books 'most imaginative'
Updated 08 October 2004, 09.33
The Order of the Phoenix came out in 2003
The Harry Potter books are the most imaginative kids' stories, according to a survey of 700 children.

The 10-to-13-year-olds were asked their opinions in a poll for the Prince of Wales Arts & Kids Foundation's StoryQuest storytelling festival.

JK Rowling's young wizard was followed on the list by The Lord of the Rings and the Tracy Beaker stories.

More than 13,500 kids have attended StoryQuest events and readings by poets and authors being held around the UK.

Prince Charles also revealed his favourite reads from when he was a kid.

Top of his list were the Just So Stories by Jungle Book author Rudyard Kipling.

Other books on the kids' list were the Goosebumps collection and Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which is being filmed by director Tim Burton.
