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.

Best of luck L. Sydney Abel with your new book about a "Wobbly Onkey". It does sound an intriguing read and I wish you well with sales. I can recommend a children's book newly-published on Kindle - it is an adventure story set on the Llyn peninsula of North Wales, chiefly around the Abersoch area, called Smugglers At Whistling Sands by George Chedzoy. It is somewhat in the style of a traditional Enid Blyton tale, but up to date and more realistic. The children, led by headstrong and fearless girl Lou go on the trail of smugglers they come across while on holiday. Smugglers at Whistling Sands

Monty O'Kelly's book "The Clover Siblings and Evil of Desmal," is one to read for ages 8-12 but there is so much to the book that I think it works for any age.

Here is the product description:
Product Description
Mason and Carter Clover only agree on two things--their baby sister Isabella is a royal pain and their favorite video game, Zamora's Ultimate Challenge, is totally awesome. But fantasy turns to reality when Zamora's evil face appears across the brothers television screen. Claiming to have kidnapped Isabella, the queen challenges the boys to a daring rescue, inviting them to her island--the Island of Desmal--before she takes over their sister's soul.

Zamora's plan is to use the baby as a human vessel to travel to Earth and dominate the world. Once the brothers figure out how to get inside the video game, they are hurled into the magical land of Boysen where they meet their helpful guides: a sage, a quirky mermaid, and a Pegasus (who flies them to each thrilling level of the video game), and toward the evil on the Isle of Desmal.

Racing against time, the brothers search for their sister, encountering a myriad of dangerous enemies including stinging fairies, haunted Master Souls, and brutish, knife-wielding pirates. Can they beat each level of the game while being hunted by a fire-breathing dragon, stalked by a robotic shark, and terrorized by acid-poop-bombing pterodactyls? Driven by the powerful bonds that unite siblings, Mason and Carter are determined to face their fears and will stop at nothing to bring Isabella home...but first they must survive the Isle of Desmal and the evil Queen Zamora!

My book Goalden Girl is the story of Gemma who wants to set up a girls' football team at her new school.

It's available in paperback and on Kindle for the low price of 0.86

I'd get your plugs in quick because Amazon.com are deleting promo posts! Won't be long before they do it here, too!

Great idea for a topic! Thanks so much for letting us share. I have one:

Good luck everyone with the children's books on Kindle - I would like to add my own fantasy adventure stories, which I think will appeal to boys and girls who like adventure from age nine - I can't give an upper limit as many adults have enjoyed reading them. 3 Things That Might Have HappenedStephen Initiation (Sequel to 3 Things That Might Have Happened)

Hi everybody,

First Friend by Edinaldo Santo, for 4-8yo.

Zaba is the oldest of a hatch of three chicks, but he was born so tiny and fragile that Mother Bird had to give him special care.
One day, a distracted firefly flies into Zaba's nest and finds himself in trouble.
Tickle, the firefly, truly believes the small chick lacks life experience, but for his surprise, he discovers that the little bird is cleverer than he thinks and falls for the little chick's trick.
They become friends and together will live through incredible adventures.
Available for kindle and in paperback

Do you consider young adult (teen) books to be for kids? If so, I have two of them:

Favorite 1.67 (a creepy castle, and a mystery regarding a missing mother. The main character's name is Angie Favorite, hence the misspelling.)

Life On Hold 1.67 (A coming of age tale about a girl named Rae, her first love, and a mysterious new girl named Allison whose dark secrets disrupt Rae's life.)

Thank you!

Lynne North's fantasy books for children are well worth checking out on Kindle. One is a humorous fantasy, and the other Sword & Sorcery. My grand kids love them!

Neil Ostroff says:
Thirteen-year-old Tim Madison is the only person who knows about and can stop the ruthless creatures who are working deep inside our planet constructing a massive extermination army. Tim's ordinary life turns upside down when a strange visitor takes him aboard a magnificent spaceship to train for a future alien war. Returned home with new skills and this terrible knowledge, Tim confides in his two best friends about his experience. Now, they're in a race against time to prevent an all-out attack on Earth.

The authorities would never believe their story of course, because they're just kids. Bearing humiliation at school and ramifications at home, they hop a bus and journey to the Grand Canyon where they locate an alien army many thousands of times greater than what Tim had expected. Caught up in escalating danger, Tim and his buds must make a choice. Try to climb back out of the canyon without being seen or take the aliens head on. If only Tim could acquire a weapon and steal one of the alien's fighter ships he might have a chance at victory.

Readers can expect deadly creatures, technical marvels, and in the end, something surprising to play a key role in winning the epic battle.

Hi. Try the Sorcerer's Tome. It's in ebook format and is the first in a series.
Here's the blurb: Thomas Knight believes in magic, especially at this time of year. He wouldn't be at all surprised if Santa himself descended from the night sky and asked for directions to the nearest reindeer servicing depot. But tonight, Tom will embark an an adventure that will snatch him out of this world and into a realm of magic, mythical creatures, evil sorcerers and very cold feet.
Stranded in this magical realm, Tom soon finds that his arrival is no accident. Ancient scrolls have foretold his return to this world so he can rid it of evil as he had done centuries earlier. Not bad considering he is only fourteen.
Aided by an unemployed cleric, a vampire with an affliction, a girl who is really no fun to be around once a month, a fairy with a masculinity complex and the empathic daughter of a seer, Tom embarks on a quest to steal the source of the evil sorcerer Balfore's power and the key to opening the door back home, an ancient book - The Sorcerer's Tome. But the Tome is not the only thing with power, as Tom finds out the closer he gets to the book.

Enjoy.

I have just published an ebook of short stories called 'The Davis Duus'. Suitable for 8-10 year olds, I hope it will intrigue them.
The Davis Duus are a family of little creatures who live within the walls of a football stadium. Alice Davis Duus tries to keep a tidy home, while Herman Davis Duus forages for food around the stadium after matches and in the city beyond. Their children, Alexandra, Yolanda and Robert play and have adventures in various parts of the stadium. But they all encounter threats and dangers from creatures like the Gorgon Zola, the Tannen Bourg and the Mantula, not to mention the constant threat of being discovered by the humans. Their lives are a continuous struggle to survive and develop their own little world in testing circumstances.

If you like fast paced stories with lots of exciting action and adventure that will keep young readers guessing to the very end, then I highly roccomend Jack Hunter - Secret of the King.

The book also contains a trail of clues and a secret code pulling them into their own adventure long after reading the book.
