I always think it sad when people designate books 'for boys.' If there's any sort of excitement in them , they seem to be immmediately driected at boys. My own granddaughter started her reading with an obsession with Peter Pan books and is now reading the Beastquest series. She loves them and is made to feel unsure of herself when she is constantly told they are for boys.

My son also loved the Beast Quest books. I have the Nthony Horowitz books for him which I think he could read but he is too young in "actual" age for them at the moment. I think your 12 year old may really enjoy them though. My son moved on to Cressida Cowell's "How to Train your Dragon" series which he adored.

Hi Jean, I know what you mean and I try to treat my daughter and my son the same and offer them the same books etc (and indeed we were introduced to BeastQuest by an obseesed 8 year old girl!). I think the main problem though is that there is far more fiction out there written specifically for girls (my son would not have contemplated reading the Rainbow Magic series for instance although one of his friends loves them!) so there is always the desperate hunt for the next good "boys' " book which will attract our sons. My daugher reads many of the same books my son loves - but it doesn't work as well the other way round.... She thoroughly enjoyed the "How to Tame your Dragon" series but he won't go anywhere near "Ballet Shoes"!

Hello Claire
I have a book that has just come out, which he might enjoy. It's called St Viper's School for Super Villains. Several boys, who have read the Beast Quest series are reading my story now (and apparently "devouring it", which is really nice!) He might like the Beano meets Manga illustrations too.

Another suggestion: 'A Series of Unfortunate Events.' My nephew was a reluctant reader but he read every one of these books. I hope this helps. Kim.

Superpowers: The Tusked Terror

You could try the SuperPowers series. It is only 7 books. I have put one the links above.
Two boys have 7 days to rescue Hercules. They are given 7 superpowers (one each day, at a certain time, and if they miss it, they miss it) . And 7 ''deadly'' tasks given by the evil goddess Juno, who has imprisoned Hercules and wish to destroy the boys.

Short books but very readable. My 11 year old read them two years ago and loved them. That (and the Rainbow Fairies series - because of the silly gobblins) put him onto the love of reading.

Why not try Dare Quest? The reading level is similar, the stories are well written and there's a glossary to help with some of the less common words. eg. The Chinese Pirate: Dare Quest: 1

After the Beast Quest series the series my son found most accessible (in terms of reading ability) was the Grk series by Josh Lacey. They were very good. Anthony Horowitz was also very popular with him and also the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.

After the Beast Quest series my son got into the Dare Quest series. He found it just as or maybe even more exciting. The language level is similar but in Dare Quest the author teaches a few new words in each book to help kids develop their vocabulary. My son loved Dare Quest: The Tiger: 3 and Dare Quest: The End of the World: Volume 6
