Recently started to allow the children to use the kindle. We've read the Poky little puppy and Beach Snuffle which both went down very well and we are now looking for something similar...any suggestions?

Try my book on Kindle, it's a new age and books are being sent out on kindle at unbeatable prices A Children's book for 70p on http://www.amazon.co.uk Kindle - ON OFFER. Click on and look inside at `Hocus Pocus and the Pentacle Pendant'

Reviewed in the UK largest Children's newspaper

In this epic book 7 kids from different countries go to a school in Brussels and are guided into the art of Magic with a book called Hocus Pocus.
This book made me feel like I was a magician and got my really involved in the characters.
If you are a wizard or witch fan I definitely recommend this book I couldn't put it down.
I enjoyed this book so much, that I am looking forward to the sequel I would give this book a 10 out of 10 and am looking for to reading other books by Mr P. C.

Hi, Try my ebook 'Cordelia & Mer and the WITCHES of ICE' It has fun characters, but a dark adventurous narrative. The main protagonists are these two young witches, plus loads of weird but deadly adversaries. It's beginning to get noticed and I've kept the price low too. My nieces and their friends have given me good feedback as well. You can also download a free sample to read on your Kindle or PC. Thanks for reading! -Will G.

A Hare's Tale Try this one, a short story with a young Doe Hare as lead. It's been well received and it is due to be released as a paperback around September.

Wow, do people even bother to read the original post before trying to push their books? I haven't read them, but from description and front cover alone it's clear that almost all of those books - with the possible exception of the Hare's Tale - are in no way similar to the books Graffalo fan referred to.

I'm an author myself, published by one of the big publishers, and I'm as keen as anyone else to promote my own books, but only when I think they're genuinely the type of book someone might be looking for. Kids having Poky Little Puppy read to them are not going to be interested in Pentancle Pendants or "dark adventurous narratives".

Best of luck finding something useful, Gruffalo Fan. I haven't yet tried my own little 'un with ebooks yet, so I'm afraid I can't really be of much help. Had to get all that off my chest, though!

So I hold up my hands as guilty - I didn't read Poky Little Puppy - I have now read an extract - so some people are trying all types of ways to get established and I had presumed that Gruffalo Fan had children who were reading - the review I displayed was by an eight year old and I thought the content of Poky Little Puppy was possibly more adult - Sorry Patrick

The Poky Little Puppy (Little Golden Book)

I wasn't really aiming at anyone in particular there, Patrick, just a general rant so please don't take it personally.

So many authors, both traditionally published and self-published, are quick to try to push their book on people at every opportunity. I think it can quickly become a turn-off for people asking for suggestions, and these books will often be ignored.

By all means, if your book sounds to be what the original poster is looking for, then let them know about it. But strike a balance. Recommend other books that you like, and that you think will be useful. Look at the forums as a chance to share information, not solely as an opportunity to promote your own book. Do that and people will start to respect you and your opinions on here, and they're much more likely to take a chance on your work.

Thanks for the reply - I didn't take it to heart to strongly, but the point was taken. I do read any follow up to anything I write and I hope the link for The Poky Little Puppy made up for my indiscretion. Kindest regards Patrick.

My kids loved reading Wiggles and the Loch Ness Monster (Wiggles the Flying Pig), they also liked the fact that some of the money goes towards helping endangered animals.

Daisy Drama Club and The Ghost Burglars You could try this ... inspired by my own daughter who set up a drama club with her best friend. We ended up putting on about ten plays in our village hall and even went on tour ...

Yes, I'm plugging my own book, The Stolen Christmas. Very topical for this time of year.

As your children enjoyed Poky Little Puppy you could try my picture eBook book which also has dogs as the main characters:

Why not try "Alice Parkers Metamorphosis". It's a great book for younger readers. It's the first in a series by Nicola Palmer, she's VERY talented. The book is a mixture of fairytale and growing up!! Lots of fun

Hi Gruffalo Fan

I'm writing a series about a young boy who invents a Time Machine and travels back and forth through the ages, full of exciting adventures! The first book is 'Timmy & the Time Machine in 'Dinosaur Adventure!' (77p) and I read it to a number of school classes, (Years 4-7) who were wildly enthusiastic about it. It's done in verse and a little gory towards the end, but they loved it! It also has a couple of wonderful illustrations with it. The next in the series is when Timmy goes back to WW1, and there are many more on the way...entertaining, exciting and educational!

And remember...'Read...Succeed!'

Matt

mr sandcastle, where are you - beach holiday book

My MG fantasy novel, Truth Teller, is aimed at younger children, but will appeal to all age groups who enjoy fantasy. I wrote it especially to introduce children to the exciting world of fantasy where some of the classic novels are a little hard to absorb for younger children.

My kids loved 'Bertle B.Bug and the Case of the missing Space Slugs', it has quite a few funny moments in it and lots of characters they can remember. My little girl loved it.

Who said Quack? Did you say Quack? is a great little ebook, lots of pace with a determined little duck who never gives up. My kids love it, especially saying 'quack!' in all the right places.
