Reading adventure books allows you to travel to fun and exciting places just by turning some pages. Whether you want to read a classic like Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, The Box Car Children Series, or The Borrowers, these adventure novels have exciting turns at every page.

Some of the newer titles on the list are from author Kate DiCamillo. DiCamillo is probably best known for her book Because of Winn Dixie, which was a very popular book that was also a very popular movie. If you liked Because of Winn Dixie, make sure to check a personal favorite of mine, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. In this story you get to follow the journeys and adventures of a China Rabbit named Edward Tulane as he goes from owner to owner and adventure to adventure. Will he ever be reunited with his first owner and love Abilene? Read the book to find out.

Boys will especially like the series The Ranger's Apprentice by John Flanagan. Based in European Medieval Times, there are currently ten books in the series. Flanagan originally thought of these stories to interest his own son in reading.

Hi Parent Forum,
I'm a nanny for a voracious reader and need book recommendations, please. She is 10, and she loves all the harry potter bookss, the warrior cats book, anything with witches, magic, adventure.
Recently, her mom and I have noticed her picking up books more about adolescence, high school, etc, and some of these, though in the kids'section of her library, or barnes and noble, are really a little too sexual/vulgar or just plain vapid and garbagy.
So, I ask you, parents of craig's list, what are some good books for a girl who wants something more grown up, but is still age-appropriate? I'm thinking judy blume, beverly cleary, but maybe something more modern?
She's struggling a bit with her writing in school, so we're trying to encourage lots of good...
