Middle Grade Book Help

My 9yo and I just finished the Peter and the Starcatchers series by Ridley Pierson and Dave Barry. Love those books! It's my second time through and they were still fun. But now I'm not sure which direction to go. Should we start Fablehaven or Harry Potter? Are those series still a bit above his level? My oldest (now 12) read Fablehaven and Harry Potter at nine but you all understand how each child is a bit different. My 9yo is very smart but hasn't been as passionate about reading as his older brother. I hate to start a series that's too advanced for him and frustrate him. Any suggestions for fabulous middle grade book series? My son likes adventure, humor, and scoring lots of points on AR tests. Maybe we'll just read Chickens in the Headlights again. He hasn't done an AR test on that one yet and Matthew Buckely is always great for a laugh.

  1. You should have him read Michael Vey, Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans. It's his new series for children/teen. I thought it read young, younger then Fablehaven and Harry Potter. I think it will be a good series and can't wait until the next book comes out. Check out this website: http://www.michaelvey.com/

  2. Thank you, Sondra. I love Richard Paul Evans' books but had no clue he was doing a series for children. I will definitely check it out!
