Luke recommends...

Several people commented to us that they'd really like some suggestions of books to read. Here are Luke's recommendations:

  • Stoneheart trilogy by Charlie Fletcher
  • Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer
  • Skulduggery Pleasant series by Derek Landy
  • Wolf Brother series by Michelle Paver
  • The River/Valley/Castle/Circus/Island/Mountain/Ship of Adventure books by Enid Blyton
  • Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney
  • How to Train your Dragon series by Cressida Cowell
  • Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan
  • Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan
  • Time Riders by Alex Scarrow
  • H.I.V.E. series by Mark Walden
  • C.H.E.R.U.B. series by Robert Muchamore
  • Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan
  • Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert O'Brien
  • The Carpet People by Terry Pratchett
  • Only You Can Save Mankind and its sequels Johnny and the Bomb & Johnny and the Dead by Terry Pratchett

Some of the books, like How To Train Your Dragon, have been favourites since Year 3 but still make us laugh. Michael Morpurgo's Kaspar, Prince of Cats was good too. Eoin Colfer's books for younger readers like The Legend of... Spud Murphy/Captain Crow's Teeth/The Worst Boy In The World were also very good. Horrid Henry is obviously fun when you are starting out. And Pippi Longstocking is not just for girls, it's fun for everybody.
