I must admit, I don’t read very many children’s books. I must also admit that of the ones I’ve read, very few make it to my list of favorites. Sure, I’ve read the Percy Jackson series, which I love, but this list is made to bring light to less popular children’s books. It also doesn’t help that I hated reading as a child and therefore did not read many of them back then. So, let’s see what I can come up with.
**These are in no particular order**
The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
It’s Alice in Wonderland with a twist. Think magic battles, an assassin Cheshire Cat, a Mad Hatter trained to protect the White Queen, and an Alice with the pure magic of imagination.
The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen
(The Ascendance Trilogy)
The royal family is dead, now whoever finds the long-lost prince will rule the kingdom. Since the prince is presumed dead, a nobleman takes up four boys and trains them, the best one will be come the false prince.
The Spiderwick Chronicles by Tony DiTerlizzi Holy Black
A magical hidden world of faeries and dark magic just got revealed by three siblings. Admittedly, I haven’t finished this series, but the ones I have read have been so good. I will try to return to this series sooner or later.
Looks like this week it’s only gonna be a top 3.
