[bksvol-discuss] Re: More kids series

Must say I didn't quite get the resolution. From chapter 36 on. If anyone can explain, do so pvt to prevent destroying the book for anyone who has not yet read it.

Thanks.

Ah, but she has Harry's kids to work with, smile.

And i think it would be great some day for a Harry the Next generation.
After all Little Albus needs to distinguish himself.

Dear Carrie,

Jamie Yates and I completed adding The Spiderwick Chronicles 5 book series
last year, some of them BSOs. We plan to add a recently published companion book to the series soon. The author, a very colorful character herself, kind
of puts me in mind of a more flamboyant mortisia from the Adams Family, is
concentrating more on books for older kids and teens, now, I think.

The Spiderwicks are so short, I'm wondering if the movie will cover 2 or
more of the books.

And that comment by Rowling that she may give us an eighth book in the
Potter universe, even though Harry probably won't be the protagonist is as
you said, fuel for hope!

Most series books are fun. They are great diversions from the monastery and
Middle-earth where I'm doing my hardest validating just now. Thanks to you
and Allison for the ideas.

Always with love,

Lissi

 Hi gang,

Allison Hilliker talked to a teen's librarian in Arizona and she suggested some more contemporary children and teen series than the ones I listed. All
children's book series, new and old, are welcome!


 The Spiderwick Chronicles, by Tony DiTerlizzi & Holly Black, beginning
with The Field Guide (the movie's coming out sometime this year).

 Time Warp Trio series, by Jon Scieszka.  These are a bit older - they
began in 1991, and the most recent was written in 2006 - but they're fun and
both boys and girls love 'em.

 My Weird School, by Dan Gutman, beginning with Miss Daisy is Crazy.

 Percy Jackson and the Olympians, by Rick Riordan, beginning with The
Lightning Thief (this one's for 5th grade-ish and up)

 The Septimus Heap series, by Angie Sage, beginning with Magyk.  These are
for ages 9-ish and up, but are weighty, all of 'em (so far, 3) being over
500 pages.

 The Judy Moody books, by Megan McDonald, beginning with Judy Moody, are
well liked by girls, and her younger brother's getting his chance to shine
in the Stink books.

Sammy Keyes, is a delightful young detective, and she begins her series in
Sammy Keyes and the Hotel Thief by Wendelin Van Draanen (this one won the
1999 Edgar Award for best children's mystery).  Van Draanen also writes a
series for boys: Shredderman, about a boy who has a "superhero" alter ego.

 Mercy Watson, by Kate DiCamillo, beginning with Mercy Watson to the
Rescue. This one is an easy chapter book, for ages 6-8.
