All good ideas - also look at Madeline L'Engle...

 Great suggestions from Kristen.  Also, the Prydain Chronicles by Lloyd Alexander and The Dark is Rising sequence by Susan Cooper.

Hi Clair,

I’d recommend the following. These are books my own 9 year old is devouring as he is a fantasy enthusiast and advanced reader:

·        Serephina by Rachel Hartman (duology)

·        Goose Girl by Shannon Hale (series)

·        Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale

·        Princess Academy by Shannon Hale

·        The Alchemyst by Michael Scott (series)

·        Beyonders by Brandon Hull (series)

·        Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula LeGuin

 

Hope these help!

Hi!

 

I recently got a request to put together a reading list for a 9 y.o. reading near a 9th grade level. They like fantasy, but their parents want to keep their reading away from gore or romantic elements-- so definitely no Hunger Games, Mortal Instruments, etc. This second stipulation has really stymied my ideas-- does anyone have any recommendations?

 

Thanks!

Clair Irwin
