Middle Grade Series

Do your kids hate coming to the end of a great book? Be the hero of your house and introduce them to these fun-filled series, where your 9- to 12-year-old can follow the action for book after book after book! Choose between an epic fantasy like Ranger’s Apprentice,  daring adventures like Stranded, thrilling spy novels like Alex Rider, or time-travelling historical fiction like Treasure Chest. Once your kids start reading these page-turners, they’ll want to collect them all!
