Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson
Peter and the Starcatchers

I read this book aloud to my 6 and 11 year olds in 4 days. That is quite fast for a 450 page book. Our speed attests to its excitement and entertainment value. At the end of each chapter, my daughter would beg for more, more, more. When we took to book to a meeting to read, other children and parents had many good things to say about it, too. Just be ware of adapting pirate lingo into your adult conversations... don't call anyone and idjit or mate or they may think you're strange.

Poppy by Avi

Heather Hardman, March 21, 2009

I have read all the Poppy books to my children. Their favorite part is Ereth's "swearing", which brings forth giggles and lots of smiles. (The swearing is not really bad words; it's a grumpy yet loveable porcupine's way of letting off steam: comical yet quite innocent.)These books are fun to read aloud and have lots of adventure. I highly recommend them.
