Everybody's familiar with the big literary names that line bookshelves in homes and libraries: Hemingway, Woolf, Fitzgerald.
Some may even be familiar with their iconic images which grace their novels' back covers.
However, not unsurprisingly, these people who contributed so much to literature were once tiny little babies, or precocious children, or awkward teenagers, just like the rest of us. And, just like the rest of us, they've been captured in embarrassing photographs along the way.
So we've performed the brave duty of digging out those photos of our youthful literary heroes, and tasking you with the challenge of trying to guess who those little people turned into.
It's ok, we tell you on the next slide - but see how many you can guess from our clues!
