We just finished reading all of the Guardians of Childhood books by William Joyce. We really liked them all. The movie is one of Elliott's favorite, so he was excited to check out the first book. I think it took us about a week to read it. At least one of the others also went that fast, but one of them took us over two weeks to read. It wasn't that the book wasn't good, it was just a busy time. It was the one we were reading when we had a lot of extra stuff going on. So far there are four books out, with at least one more planned. They are most appealing to kids in grades 2-6.

We are currently reading Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke. We have only been reading it for a few days, and we both like it so far. It's a really long book (nearly 550 pages!) so it will probably take us quite a while to read it, but so far neither of us have lost interest. It's the first of Cornelia Funke's books we've read, but Elliott has already added another one to our wishlist on Amazon. According to Scholastic, it's most appealing to kids in third to fifth grade.
