    My son also loved the Artemis Fowl series.

    I keep a little ongoing list on my blog’s sidebar, and the few I have that aren’t here are: Guardians of Ga’Houle (owls rather than cats like Warriors), Spiderwick Chronicles (if Harry Potter was tolerated as not too scary, than this is fine), Capital Mysteries (by same author as A to Z Mysteries), Ranger’s Apprentice (good enough for parents to read as well), and Deltora Quest. My homeschooled boys didn’t care for Diary of a Wimpy Kid and didn’t want to see the movie. Thanks for the list, there are a few I hadn’t heard of before, and will certainly check out! We can never get enough good series around here! Ranger’s Apprentice #8 is being read right now, as well as the Mysterious Benedict Society.

    gavin didn;t really read (past those Kindergarten easy beginner things) until 5th grade. He found the Animorphs series and just devoured them He’s in 10th grade and still goes back and reads them.

    Warriors series (you mentioned)was the series that Connor really interested in reading.

    Lemony Snicket(mentioned here4) is what finally got Ki reading this year (7th grade- he was a bit slower to get reading than even Gavin)

    and the Charlie Bone series.

    Please take Inkheart off your list. It’s terrible.

    Add manga. It’s HUGE!

    Skulduggary Pleasant series by Derek Landy. My son (9-and-a-half and a good reader) declares them the best books he’s ever read.

    Great suggestions! My boys and I may never be at a loss for a read-aloud again. :)
