Six summer reads for… 9 to 12 year olds!

We’re back with another six summer read recommendations – this time for nine to twelve year olds!

Summer Holiday Stories by Enid Blyton (short story collection): join Blyton’s much loved characters as they adventure over land and sea in these 22 tales! Featuring appearances from the Famous Five gang and the twins at St Clares.

George by Alex Gino: George knows she is a girl, and one destined to play Charlotte in her school production of Charlotte’s Web. Problem is, everyone else sees George as a boy. A genuine read about being yourself.

The Girl of Ink and Stars by Kiran Millwood Hargrave: inhabitants of the island of Joya have been warned not to venture beyond their township when Isabella sets off on a treacherous journey. A mythical fantasy for fans of Percy Jackson.

Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy: an already dead detective sets out with twelve-year-old Stephanie to uncover the mystery of her uncle’s death. The first part of a best-selling, quick witted and fantastical series.

Wonder by RJ Palacio: the heartwarming story of Auggie – who has a facial disfigurement – going to school for the first time. How will the other children react, and will he manage to make new friends?

The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson: Matthew must investigate his neighbour Teddy’s disappearance, and he can’t let his OCD stand in his way. A story about stepping out of your comfort zone and finding friendship.

Do any of these catch your eye? If you’re left searching for more activities to fill your summer of creativity, you can still sign up to our free Summer Reading Goals list, or book to attend one of our brand new summer holiday workshops!
