Please give Diana Wynne Jones a try. Her books are excellent. The Chrestomanci series 7 books is about an eccentric enchanter; a kind of Minister of Magic.
I love the chronicles of Narnia. They are very fin and enjoyable to read,I highly recommend them! The Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull is perfect for this age group. A brother and sister go to visit their grandparents and discover that they are the caretakers of a nature preserve for magical creatures, both good and evil. They discover that someone is trying to loose the evil creatures and take over the world.
Can they work together to keep the evil from overtaking the good? The Land of Stories series is great for this age and I believe struggling readers though the books are large will love them enough to read themselves if a parent reads the first 3 chapters to them. I want to thank you for these posts. My 4th grade son is a voracious reader, and your list has helped me so much to keep up with his reading habits. May I link to your page from my blog, http: The plots are riveting, and the addition of time travel is appealing to this grade level.
Thanks for this great list! My 4th grade son has learned so much about mythology Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Norse and just loved all those books. Check out the database at this website. It is the collection of books curated by the AFrican American girl in search of 1, books about black girls.

You can check the books based on reading level, and more. My third grade loves the Frog Princess series. We read together every night and I enjoy them as much as she does. My 10 year old son loves the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan. He loved them more than the Percy Jackson and he liked that series. There are also 2 other series by the same author that wrote Warriors. One is called Seekers, the other is Survivors. My son loved all of them, but Seekers was his favorite. Thanks for all the great suggestions!!
I was looking for someone else who would suggest this series. One of our favorites! I suggest the Merits of Mischief series by T. My son who does not like reading, could not put these down. He read these all in grade 6. Thanks for the great list. I would include the Alex rider series, the witch baby series very funny and how to train your dragon series too.
Fablehaven series 5 book series. Author of the Spirit Animal Series you listed. I read them first and am sharing them with my kids now! What I love is that at the end of the books there are discussion questions you can ask your kids. The Five Kingdom Series 4 books so far one yet to come. Also by Brandon Mull. Dare I say even better than Fablehaven??!!! Dunno but your kids will love them.
I really enjoyed the Beyonders series by Brandon Mull as well. There was one character that freaked me out a little.
Pegasus, the Flying Horse
Ferrin was his name. Totally brilliant and cool concept for a character! But you should find him and read about his particular abilities and judge if you are ok with letting your kid read it. They are even better than the first series of books. It ties in the Roman personas of the Greek Gods and introduces you to another camp of Roman demigods. Of corse Percy and Annabeth are still major players. About the Egyptian Gods told by a brother and sister who are always making snarky remarks while the other is speaking.
The storyline is amazing. The Sisters Grimm series by Michael Buckley is a hilariously entertaining series! When my mother bought me the Charlie Bone series, she also got Artemis Fowl. I love them both! Artemis is a brilliant, rich criminal mastermind, but he may be in over his head when he kidnaps Captain Holly Short of the LEPrecon Unit. These fairies are armed and dangerous. Anything by Stuart Gibbs! I have read many of the ones you listed Autumn and loved them as well.
Thanks for this list! These are all wonderful series! One other I think you should add is the Fablehaven series by Brandon Mull. Next to Harry Potter they are mine and my kids favorites! Savvy, Scumble and Switch by Ingrid Law are some of our favorites. The main character in the first book is Mibs Beaumont, is about to turn 13, and with a grandpa who can move mountains, and older brothers who can create storms and spark electricity, she is anxiously awaiting her birthday. The second and third novels are about different members of their extended families. Both my son and daughter enjoyed this series, and we all hope there will be more to come.
My son loves reading and is starting the 2nd grade. We are already running out of ideas for books to read that are not really scary but are at his reading and interest level. We have read Narnia over the summer so this is a great list of what we can read next!!!

However, he had a like-sounding name, and Greek visitors to Cilicia may have connected their existing Pegasus with Zeus 's lightning after hearing about this 'Pihassassi' and his functions and assuming, wrongly, he was their own Pegasus in a foreign land.

Percy's oldest romantic relationship is with Annabeth Chase. Their relationship gradually changes throughout the first series , with the goddess Aphrodite first insinuating that it was romantic in The Titan's Curse , when Percy undertakes a quest to free Annabeth from the Titan Atlas. However, Percy's first move towards a serious relationship does not occur until the final pages of The Last Olympian. Percy's other important romantic relationship occurs in the interim of his first. As the final battle with the Titans approaches after The Battle of the Labyrinth , Percy spends time with his mortal friend Rachel Dare.
Their relationship causes conflict between Percy and Annabeth Chase. Towards the end of The Last Olympian Rachel realizes that her attraction is not to Percy, but to his mythological world, because of her destiny as the next Oracle of Delphi. Three other characters in the novels are romantically interested in Percy, though he remains mostly oblivious. Nico di Angelo 's hero worship of Percy turns into an ever-worsening crush on him; at the same time, Nico resents Percy because he believes the son of Poseidon allowed his sister Bianca to die in battle.
Calypso later meets Percy's friend Leo Valdez ; he manages to save her, where Percy could not. Percy has several animal companions. Blackjack is first referred to as a " mare " in The Sea of Monsters , though he is called a stallion in all later books.
Blackjack becomes Percy's personal steed and companion. Blackjack is unfailingly loyal to Percy, and on several occasions manages to save Percy's life.
Blackjack always calls Percy "boss" and is quite fond of sugar cubes and doughnuts. Blackjack has two friends named Porkpie and Guido , both white pegasi, who sometimes accompany him. All three are intelligent beings capable of interacting with other demigods independent of their horse-to-human translator, Percy. Percy's second magical companion is Mrs. O'Leary , who is introduced in the fourth novel, Battle of the Labyrinth. She is a hellhound that he receives from Daedalus whom Percy meets as a sword master named Quintus before the inventor dies. O'Leary is described as "the size of a tank ", the magical veil known as the Mist causes her to appear as a poodle to mortals.
Percy often refers to her as "his dog". Percy sometimes uses Mrs. O'Leary's ability to "shadow travel" to cross large distances almost instantaneously. His brother Tyson and dead friend Charles Beckendorf are Mrs. O'Leary's other caretakers, though she is also fond of Nico di Angelo , son of Hades. He also knows a hippocampus named Rainbow who likes Percy's half-brother Tyson. It later saves the life of Tyson and returns to help the two brothers on several occasions.
Percy has also traveled with a small calico kitten called Small Bob by Bob the Titan. Small Bob was accidentally created by one of Atlas 's servants who was attempting to summon a group of spartoi. He is fond of Bob and protective of the traveling group, leading Bob to call him "a good monster". Small Bob can transfer into a full sized saber-toothed tiger at will and occasionally appears as an x-ray for a few seconds at a time. His purr is disproportionately loud for an animal of his size. It is unclear if he lives or dies, but he is not mentioned again.
