The wheels on the bus…

A quick little post this afternoon, by special request of my boy Evan.

He’s off to camp soon, and he needs a book or two to read on the bus.  It’s a fairly long trip, so he wants to make sure that he picks something that’ll keep him interested.

Previously he’s been into the Beast Quest series and the Young Samurai books.  He also quite likes all those silly, Just Shocking type titles.  In other words, he’s interests are pretty broad.

So, in order to find something new, Evan has asked me to ask you guys for suggestions – do you have any ideas for books that’d strike a cord with a ten year old?

    I read The Hunger Games recently, might be a little old for him, quite violent, but it was good. Seems its quite popular, and it’s the first of a trilogy so if it’s a really long bus ride…

    It’s basically a young adult cross between The Running Man & Battle Royal… so you can see why I read it!

    No surprises there, quite what I’d expect J.

    It’s funny actually, someone mentioned this book to me last night too with rave reviews. I’ll have to get a copy and read it myself, at least then I’ll know if Ev is ready for it yet. I’m sure he’d say he is 🙂
