I mentioned last week that Kyle had been enjoying the Ricky Ricotta books by Dav Pilkey. We've gotten a few more at the library.
In addition to those, he has enjoyed a little Pokemon chapter book we picked up at the library, and The Great Puffle Switch that we had bought at the book fair last spring. He was asking for more of those books (because he can also use the included code online at Club Penguin), and I just noticed that they have quite a few in the "Choose Your Own Adventure" style, and they are part of amazon's 4 for 3, which I absolutely love, so I'm thinking that my little reader boy will get a reward. Though we use the library a LOT, I like to have some books around, so that they will always have something to read.
Iron King series. She read the first one (linked to my review), and just recently started The Iron Daughter, and is loving that too.
When I first read it, I wasn't sure if it might be a bit too intense for her, but I think it's okay. In addition, it uses a mild swear word fairly frequently (more frequently than in other books she's read, where it's just been a one-off), but we discussed it.
She also really enjoyed Belly Up, a dead hippo mystery. It has great reviews at amazon as well (and which I will be reviewing over at 5 Minutes for Books at some point).
