Great books for rising 7 year olds
April Wallis "scary_aunty"
"You cannot talk about children's books without Roald Dahl - simply the most frequently read book by new independent readers"
The Iron Man: A Children's Story in Five Nights
"Fantastic language and introduction - frequently read book in schools - a George & the Dragon story - suits children with advanced reading skills - The Iron Giant film has a different plot to the book"
The Hodgeheg (Puffin Modern Classics)
"Another children's author that is great for this younger age group & who also writes across many age groups - a simple, caring & frequently read story by young readers"
The Diary of a Killer Cat (The Killer Cat)
"A really funny story written from the cat's point of view - "OK OK so hang me I killed the bird" said Tuffy. Anne Fine writes for all age groups."
George's Marvellous Medicine
"Another great story about mischief & magic & a small boy - v funny - kind of goes well with work about cookery - language & length suits a confident reader"
The Magic Finger
"Great for empowering young girls - mischief & magic - Roald Dahl books make great read out loud books to less confident readers too"
The Man Who Wore All His Clothes
"Good transition from picture books to chapter books - full colour illustrations - large format - good story - also see the other stories about the Gaskitts"
Seriously Silly Stories: Snow White and The Seven Aliens
"A great 'alternative' story to snow white - works well for children who already know the original story, so can understand the parody - part of a series of silly stories"
Horrid Henry's Underpants (Horrid Henry Early Reader)
"If your kid likes Horrid Henry then great - there is a whole host of these - simple naughty boy stories in a slightly larger than average print. Has the word pants in it."
Viking at School
"Another great writer for this age group - fun story about ancient viking meets modern world."
My Mum's Going to Explode!
"1 of a series of books about Nicholas' family - this one made me laugh the most - about pregnancy & new siblings"
The Guard Dog
"I love this story - everyone has a place and there is a place for everyone - about caring for others & using peoples strengths"
The Legend of Captain Crow's Teeth
"Very funny - these "legend of ..." stories are great for younger readers of Eoin Colfer - this one made me laugh the most - especially the 'Paul Jonses'"
The Giggler Treatment
"A cautionary tale about how the fairies will get you if you are horrible to your children - (has the word poo in it). Very funny & written in an imaginative way."
A Mouse Called Wolf
"Again a touching and sensitive short story with a strong PSHE content from Dick-King Smith"
Seriously Silly Supercrunchies: Cinderboy
"Another popular book from this series of stories written for younger readers - in this version the magic slippers are a pair of football boots that score amazing goals"
The Werepuppy (Puffin Books)
"A fun story about an errant dog - written by Jacqueline Wilson for her younger readers in slightly larger than average print"
The Last Gold Diggers: Being as It Were, an Account of a Small Dog's Adventures, Down Under
"Part of a series of books about "Roo - a dog of character" as he journeys to Australia in a steam powered airplane - laughed my socks off"
Nag Club (Sprinters)
"Sprinters are a great series books by well known authors for younger readers - this is written in larger easy to read print - a lovely fun story about getting your own way with your parents"
Stone Me! (Mad Myths)
"Part of a series about modern takes on Greek myths - this one is about Medusa - would suit an older more sophisticated reader who already knows some Greek stories"
"A real book for real children who burp - a cautionary tale about burping too much"
"A great little story about serial snacking - Im sure lots of mums & dads can empathise with that one"
"A serious short book for younger readers about running away from home - needs discussion"
"This is a great traditional style ghost story for younger readers - the banana books are a series of books for newly independent readers writtten by well known authors"
4u2read: Mad Iris
"Super funny writer for this age group - printed on sensory sensitive paper for dyslexia, SLD, Irlens, ASD etc"
