This year I have read so many Junior series but have been unable to share them all. Here are four series that are funny, silly and sometimes a little gross.
This easy to read book is full of fun, adventure and cooking. Sage Cookson travels with her celebrity Chef Parents where she helps others, gets caught up in adventure and making new discoveries.
This book is about the ancient art of storytelling and centers around Mina and her rare powers. You will be taken on a journey of bravery, tragedy, dreams becoming reality, integrity and a little romance.
If your child loves princesses, the sweetest of animals, adventure and the occasional ninja move then The Enchanted Ruby is perfect for their next read.
When the sadness and anxiety is getting too much, Dad tells Maya how her mum used the garden to shine a little light when her happiness was lost. “…Your mum knew that by the time the seeds had grown, these worries would have faded away. She called them her seeds of hope.”
Ruth Waters book is fun, celebrates difference, and the importance of being true to yourself. This well paced adventure saw me instantly charmed by bear; I love that he wears patterned woolen jumpers and behaves the opposite of what is expected of a bear.
