Format: Paperback
This long series of American books is about 3 children who discover a magic world under the stairs of their home. Sounds schmaltzy but isn't. If you liked the famous five as a child, you probably will like this too, it's wholesome and upbeat. It persuaded my nearly-8-year-old son, who's bright but not mad about reading just now, to read it twice where he wouldn't get stuck into other highly regarded childrens books like Michael Morpurgo. Seems an odd partner for his other passions, ie Gameboy and Jackie Chan, but he's keen to read the next one so that's fine by me.
Quite large print and the odd mono illustration make it seem less daunting too.

My seven year old has nerly finished the last book in this set. It's taken her a while to get the reading bug but these books have worked their magic! The print is nice and large and the books are quite slim with excellent illustrations on the cover. I have quite a job to get her to stop reading at night and she's asked for more for her next birthday!
A very good buy.

Both of my sons have loved these books and read them avidly. Highly recommended, especially for boys of ages 7 to 8-ish depending on reading abilities. HTH!

A favorite for early readers 18 Jun. 2003
By "pnoyce2" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Tony Abbott's Droon series engages kids far more than adults. To an adult the simplified, rather wooden language and characters can seem bland and boring. But events move quickly, odd characters proliferate, and a child is introduced to a land with its own geography, history, and rules. This is a great way to introduce an early reader to the pleasures of fantasy. The books increase in length and (slightly) in complexity, rewarding the child who is growing in proficiency. Droon can be a compelling first chapter book series-- my son has read each of 18 or so books at least three times. One note-- the books are easily appropriate for children younger than nine. Most second graders and many first graders will find them accessible.

Get them hooked on reading. 29 Aug. 2005
By Patrick Burdett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My son was introduced to this series of books in his GT first grade class (he reads at about 3rd grade level). He loves these books and chews through them voraciously. There are a lot of thrills and excitemnt as the story's kids get into all kinds of fantastic danger and my son hates to stop each night to go to sleep. Sometimes he is so hooked he reads after school instead of playing. When he finishes one, he can't wait to start the next. Fortunately there are plenty. We now have 24.

As an adult, the stories seem kind of tame, but at 7 years old, my son gets a little bit scared with the Harry Potter and Unfortunate Events books. This is adventure he can handle without getting scared when the lights go off. The language in the books is not exactly easy, but it is simple enough to let him race through the books at a speed that keeps them exciting.

Great for solid readers as young as first grade 29 Jun. 2005
By L. Niccolini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great series that my six year old son has fallen in love with. He easily read the first four books in a week and really enjoyed them. He begged me for the next set of four and immediately threw himself into a Super Special. I love anything that excites a child to read and captures their imagination. I would highly recommend this series. It seems to be about the same reading level as the Magic Tree House or Bailey School Kids series.
