Frenchie says:

this was posted in the Kindle forum, so, I thought I would put here too. It sounds good :
First installment 'Toby Smith and The Fifth Element' is an exciting story that features magic, time travel, uniquely bizarre characters and an array of sinister worlds!

It can be purchased at the following link:

Toby Smith and The Fifth Element

The second installment is also now available and can be found here:

Toby Smith and the Space Pirates

Whilst the series is most appropriate for 9-11 year olds, the first installment captivated audiences from as young as 8 and as old as 95!

Give it a read and you won't be disappointed!!


Unfortunately, I have seen it is not available in print, only as an e-book.

The Magic Scales by Sam Wilding is non stop and really inventive. Other than that, Pullman and Lewis

Not new, but the Kindle version of The Hobbit is cheaper than usual at the moment (and always worth a read).

Rispin Quill, The Dragon Tongue is new and very enjoyable (it's like an early Terry Pratchett novel.)

Try, the Everlasting Fantastical Adventures series. The first book ~(twelve in all, to come) is called The Curse of the Grimlees. The heroes are two children, Elannah and Sam and they have fun exploring the Land of Dreams. In this adventure there are a series of magical fireworks, a Grimlee with a shadowy plan, friends such as Rodger the Badger (a cool character who knows things), a Twelve Toed Ugly Troll and a grumpy wizard called Grumphspawn. Available on Kindle.

You could try The Mighty Cabbage series of books.

The first one is free from 17-19th August, so you have nothing to lose! Three published so far and four more to come. The characters are larger than life, full of quirky humour with a fast pace and lots of action and mysterious goings-on.

Find out more at:!home/mainPage

Or go straight to: The Mighty Cabbage and the Golden Child: Book One of the Star Seed Quest

'Brian, His Granddad & the Cup of Ages" has proved popular enough to be published as a paperback book and Kindle download. It's been professionally edited and a new front cover designed specifically for the release. It doesn't officially come out until 31/08/2012 but the Ebook is available right now and the paperback book is available as a pre-order. If you enjoyed Harry Potter it's worth checking out . . .

How about the SHADOWS FROM THE PAST series by Wendy Leighton-Porter? Time-travel adventure stories, featuring the Lancelot twins, their friend Charlie, and the comical, but lovable Tonkinese cat Max. The first episode, The Shadow of Atlantis, is out in paperback and the sequel, The Shadow of the Minotaur, is on Kindle - the paperback will be available soon. There will be 15 books in the series altogether, each one a step on a journey through time, filled with thrills, spills and sprinkled with a dash of humour.

If your child likes science fiction adventures with twists and humour thrown in have a look at :

Sean Yeager and the DNA Thief (Sean Yeager Adventures)

Otherwise the Potter books are good and Morpurgo is a quality writer. Philip Pullman also.

Dear Frenchie,
The Island of Adventure (Adventure (MacMillan))
Enid Blyton's books are great stories, especially the adventure series.They may not look like much, but you cannot stop reading them when you start!They take many turns and have thrilling adventures.
The Royal Wedding Adventure: Trouble-Solving Trio
Jules Bronte writes about two twins, Isabella and Jessica in this fun story.They race against time to stop a plot that could wreck the royal wedding- along the way they meet a new friend, Edward.

Try "The Witcher Keys" by Ian Johnson. An exciting and chilling tale inspired by real life events, perfect for young teenagers to adults.

Charlie Crisp and the Witches of Cobwood
Charlie Crisp and the Witches of Cobwood - Great read, I got it via kindle, though I think it is worth having as a paperback. Wonderful upbeat story. Free of swearing and sex. Magic, talking animals, Wizard/Witches. A bit quirky but in a good way.

Hi - Try my own book - Lily Lovebug and the Unconquered Planet. Don't let the title put you off. For boys and girls (good readers - 50000 words). Full of adventure, excitement and humorous gory bits! Aliens, Wizards, giant spiders - the lot!
