Hi Fiona, I'm Colin R. Parsons, a fantasy author from Wales in the UK. Sam Wilding is a great children's author. If you want fantasy and a fast paced adventure with a little humour thrown in; try my series 'The Curious World of Shelley Vendor book 1 and The Curious World of Katie Hinge.' An enjoyable story for boys, girls, teens and adults.

The Charlie Bone series by Jenny Nimmo - complex but fun. And I'd also suggest The Candle Man by Catherine Fisher - she writes well for both 11yr olds and more mature readers.

The Artemis Fowl books and Terry Pratchett are brilliant reads

I've just bought a kindle book 'The Golden Crow Seed' for my neice, who loved it. Really good read, and it has some great illustrations in it. I'd really recommend it.

Scroobious Lock and the Circle of Light A girl and boy get involved with a mysterious secret inhabitant of a sea-side lighthouse, Scroobious Lock. Scroobious has some very bad plans for the world . . . lots of surprising action with a very satisfactory 'twist in the tail' ending. The Author!

ps search for it on Amazon

What about the Septimus Heape novels by Angie Sage?

'The Golden Falcon' (a children's book which I've just published) is fantasy written with a sense of humour. It also has family issues - and I'm a Scottish author!
Best wishes, Morag Owen.

Hi. try The Owners by Carmen capuano. She's scotish and there is more than a touch of humour in the story and as it is volume 1 I guess it is a series. Hope this helps.

You could try 'The Secrets of Yiamergin.' Its fantasy fiction has a few funny moments and its about family ties too.Its an easy read but with plenty going on.

P.Quirk, the exciting life of ! (1)
This is a mega funny, laugh out loud fantasy book that your Son will love. For a taster go onto You Tube, type in P.Quirk and click on the one with the title above and you will have a real preview of the book! P.Quirk's Gran reads the first few pages and if your Son doesn't really laugh at this then OK, i must be wrong, but i bet you he will love it........it is so funny, so crazy, yet true also in a crazy way! ENJOY!!!

You might try almost anything by Robin Jarvis- an amazing author, totally underrated, and there is nothing else like his work around.

My niece recently got to age/phase where reading became a chore and I bought her the first trilogy, The Depford Mice, to try her on them - she has now put The Whitby Witches on her birthday present list and she hasn't stopped talking about the books! A number of his books are out of print so I got her really good condition, ex-library copies for less than 1 through marketplace sellers.
