    David Walliams may be worth getting. My daughter - a Year 4 reluctant reader - LOVED his Gangsta Granny book - and it has inspired her to try other books. The Boy In The Striped Pjamas for the 5As ? Cosmic by Frank Cotterrell Boyce. The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd.
  2. Holes by Louis Sachar - just brilliant and my Y5s loved it.
    The Demon Headmaster by Gillian Cross - again, mine were gripped by this and the language used is excellent.
    Harry Potter - always a winner!
  3. Michael Morpurgo, Jacqueline Wilson, Roald Dahl, Michael Rosen.
    If it's for guided reading, do you normally base this on longer books or short texts?
  4. Philip Pullman- he does write books at several different levels of reaidng ability. My classs have leoved them this year.
