    I’ve always loved Matilda by Roald Dahl, but Danny and Charlie are favourites as well; you can’t go wrong with Roald Dahl, can you? Two of my favourites are Sabriel by Garth Nix and Philip Pullman’s Northern Lights. And I love Lowis Lowry’s The Giver and John Marsden’s Tomorrow, When The War Began as well.

    I’m not as crash hot on Stephenie Meyer who’s the big thing at the moment, but hey, anything that gets kids reading is good, right? I think we’ve got JK Rowling to thank for a lot of that. I’ll have to pass your list on to my cousins, they’ll love these. 🙂

    nylusmilk: yes, roald dahl can do no wrong! danny is my absolute favourite of his (besides my uncle oswald which is so not a children’s book!) even though i don’t fancy pheasants that much – it was that bond between father and son that got me heart melted! :mrgreen:

    i tried sabriel but i couldn’t get past the first chapter even! i do plan to try to read it again though. 😉 thanks for your recommendations, i will be sure to check them out if i see them in the library.

    yes, i’m all for authors who get kids reading, no matter how trashy their stories seem! well, i sure hope your cousins like one of the books i recommended!

    Happy Children’s Book Week!

    Eco-Libris blog brings today a recommendation on The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle (written by Stefani Newman of teensygreen). It’s a great conversation starter about nature, the seasons, and helps kids open their eyes to the world outside.

    You are welcome to read it at:

    nylusmilk: thanks for recommending!

    happy children’s book week to you too. 🙂
