    Anything by 'Howritz', sorry not sure of spelling. Look on 'The book People' site. My year 5's are mad for them. Should know the author's name though. Sorry
     
  3. Kensuke's Kingdom
    Sheeppig
    Scribbleboy
    Danny Champion of the World
    Groosham Grange
     
  4. Anthony Horowitz is the one you're after, I believe.
    The Keys to the Kingdom by Garth Nix is an excellent fantasy-oriented series they might enjoy.
     
  5. One other that I forgot is the BeastQuest series. I think we had about ten boys dressed as the main character on World Book Day from Ys 3 through to 6.

    Anything by Roald Dahl - James and the Giant Peach is just so much fun to read out loud! I'd read it to any age.
    Michael Morpurgo's great too
    Indian in the Cupboard
    The Children of Green Knowe
    I've always loved reading the Lion, WItch and Wardrobe, too. Again, a book written to be read aloud.
    Looking forward to seeing other suggestions [​IMG]
     
  7. We were saying our favourite authors today as our register response, and I said Roald Dahl, and lots of my children also said they liked him, so I may read one of his

    thanks for all the suggestions

    Another recommendation for Clockwork here. I use with my year 5 class as one of our literacy topics and every class so far has loved it. It's got a love story for the girls, and lots of action for the boys :)
