Jane. E we still read to each other because we love to read and whilst she was not keen on little women she is finding Dr Jeykll and Mr Hyde riveting! i guess it depends on on the subject matter

LOL! Jane E. the trouble is she has read all of the Jacqueline Wilsons that she wanted to read several times.. hence the need to cast out net further afield

a couple of others that occurred to me were The Curse of the Montrolfes--my copyhas the original title, Pippin's Journal. Read it long ago & loved it. (SCROLL to bottom of listing page to get reviews)--and Sophie's World: A Novel About the History of Philosophy, which was written specifically for young people.

pLEASE forgive typos--new keyboard and as I'm a touch typist amn't doing to well with it .. . .

Classics and moderns with a magical twist consider Alan Garners books The Weirdstone of Brisingamen, Owl Service and Boneland his last masterpiece. I read the first two as an able child reader and as an adult and it has depths to it. His others too. So have the Philip Pullman books. On a similar vein magical quest but modern and currently long listed by The Times for their children's literary prize but again great reads for adults too is CM Gray's The Flight of The Griffin and Shadowland.
