Matryoshka Posted June 10, 2009 Share Posted June 10, 2009 My dd turning 11 in a week, is a voracious reader. I assign her tons of books (history, science, book club, etc.), which she mostly enjoys, but she of course manages to fit in time to read lots of stuff of her own choosing. She's had a little extra time to do this this month because her sister is out of town and there hasn't been much assigned reading. She's begging for more books, and says she'd like series - so there's more to read. She especially likes mysteries or books with a bit of adventure. She's past things like Boxcar Children. Her favorite series is the Happy Hollisters - shes' read each book at least three times (and there are over 30). She's read through the classic Nancy Drews, Three Investigators, Little House on the Prairie, Narnia, Harry Potter, all 6 Borrower books (who knew there were so many??), and lots more I can't remember. I recently pointed her at Trixie Belden and she's plowing through those. Any good ideas for her? I was pondering Redwall (at least it's lots of pages!), but is that too boy-oriented? Would a girl like it? Any other ideas? I don't need highbrow literature necessarily, but I also don't want absolute Twaddle, if you know what I mean.
