Best book series: Grades 4-6 - Peter and the Starcatchers | GreatSchools

Best book series: Grades 4-6 - Peter and the Starcatchers | GreatSchools

Had this in my drafts for some reason, so it's probably incomplete. But still good, and since I don't remember why I didn't post it, here it is.

Peter and the Starcatchers By Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
Tells how Peter Pan became Peter Pan.

Cirque Du Freak By Darren Shan
Like the movie

Artemis Fowl By Eoin Colfer
12 year old Evil Genius

Goosebumps by R.L. Stine
Well-written scary stories for kids.
They made a few into shows. The scariest one to me was the one where on Halloween, everyone wearing a mask became whatever mask they were wearing. Creepy good fun! :-)

Maximum Ride By James Patterson
I remember reading the ARC edition of this that Victoria brought home. It was pretty good. Bought her the next in the series.
Also recently read the “adult” version that starts the series by Patterson. Ill Wind Blows or something.
Like three in the series. More mature kids could read the two starting novels, When the Ill Wind Blows and The Lake House.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid By Jeff Kinney
Grat book, good movie. Might as well read all 5.

A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
The movie covered the first three books (you know, sort of). The books, of course, are even better.

Little House By Laura Ingalls Wilder
At some point, all kids should read these. They’re not hard reads, and are good historical fiction.

His Dark Materials Trilogy By Philip Pullman
The Golden Compass and the rest of the books. The movie was great, so the book is probably better.

The Chronicles of Narnia By C.S. Lewis
I re-read these every few years, because the stories are just that good.
