Brief Summary by Julie Heginbotham: "Do the Secret Seven want to make themselves really useful?" said Peter and Janet's father, to them both, after reading the newspaper. He tells them about a young girl that has gone missing after stealing some money from her teacher's desk. Her parents are abroad and her brother is in France, according to what he'd just read. But the girl, whose name is Elizabeth, has been spotted in the next village of Belling. The Secret Seven think this will be a nice little mystery to clear up, if they can find this missing girl.

A brilliant mystery series from bestselling author Enid Blyton, perfect for fans of The Secret Seven. Pip discovers a room in Miss Crump's old empty house isn't empty at all - someone has been using it! It's the perfect mystery for Fatty to put his new talent for disguises to use. Now it's up to Fatty and Pip along with Bets, Larry, Daisy and Buster the dog to find out who has been using Miss Crump's old house. First published in 1945, this edition contains the original text and is unillustrated.
With it's large text and numerous illustrations, the humorous Frank Einstein and the Antimatter Motor can also be enjoyed by so called "reluctant readers". Frank is a boy genius bent on winning a science competition with his robot inventions but his rival, T. Edison, is determined to thwart him. Kids who enjoy science will get into this book (also see my list of science themed chapter books). This is the start of a 6 book series and my son declared it "super funny, especially the robot who loves to hug."
The Lost Hero. I told myself I was not going to include any Riordan books on this list. After all, it's not as if you haven't heard of them and as I've said many times, one of my book list goals is to introduce you to new-to-you-books. I changed my mind, though, after my son insisted. The Lost Hero is the first book in RR's second series and focuses on Roman mythology. The third series (The Red Pyramid books) draws on Egyptian mythology and I hear rumors there will be a fourth series based on Norse myths. I haven't read any of Riordan books but they rank highly at the top of almost every 4th grader's list of favorite books, so there you go.
Totally agree with your Riordan remarks. I am finishing the Roman series this week. The Norse series is out in the fall.Loved your list, a mix of old and new. I have an eight year old and we are looking for books to read together. DiCamillo has been great for us. Our whole family loved The Tiger Rising, great for talking about grief. One of my daughter's favourites was The Cats of Tanglewood Forrest by Charles de Lint.
My son is 8 years old and when he was 7 years old he read the first two books in the Frank Einstein series. We were both giggling really hard they were wonderful to read. Another good read is Robots Rule by C.J. Richards. The Creature from my Closet series by Obert Skye was also a good laugh for both of us. He also got into Harry Potter this summer. The Boxcar Children series and the Magic Treehouse series are also good.
The Sisters Grimm series was a great set of books. They follow the story of two sisters whose parents disappeared mysteriously several years ago. The first novel starts with them being brought to live with a grandmother they never knew they had and learning that they are descended from the famous Grimm brothers and the town their grandmother lives in is populated by fairytale characters. The girls become fairytale detectives, solving problems in the town and working to solve the mystery of their parents disappearance, while tensions mount between the humans and the fairytale creatures.
