This series is getting great reviews. I think I’ll start on this one next.

From Kirkus Reviews, “The fast-moving plot is filled with clever details and magical intrigue. … [Forsyth] develops her characters with aplomb…creating an adventure that is more than just an exciting story. … Well-crafted heroic fantasy for readers just stepping into the genre.”

This series written for ages 9-13 has four main characters, two boys and two girls, making it perfect for both. Readers who love fantasy and everything magical will be hooked. Do yourself a favor and get all five. For more on this series, click here.

Great new series for girls

EJ12: Girl Hero is an exciting new series for 7-10 year old girls. Normal, fun-loving, everyday girl Emma Jacks moonlights as a special agent working to save the world from evil. She can do anything. So why are things like bullies and going to her best friend’s slumber party so hard? 

Historical fiction and horse fans all rolled into one

Set in historic Roman times this is a fantastic pick for ages 10 and up.  With courage and determination, the blacksmith’s 0004729_300daughter successfully raises a sickly abandoned foal that later becomes the pride of the Roman cavalry.  With lots of action and suspense, this series is sure to become a favorite.  My teen daughter and I both loved it!  Start with Minna’s Quest, then No Turning Back and finally Far from Home.  Or get the whole series for $3 less.

Great addition to the Summer Reading list for ages 11-15

High adventure for boys (and girls!)

Here’s one of our most popular adventure series with a male main character for boys with a penchant for exciting edge-of-your-seat cliff-hangers.  My teen daughter and I loved this as well so no holds barred as to gender of the reader. 0001083_300

My name is not actually Penny Dreadful. It is Penelope Jones. The Dreadful bit is my dad’s JOKE. But I do not see the funny side. Plus it is not even true that I am dreadful. It’s just that sometimes my BRILLIANT IDEAS™ don’t work out completely brilliantly. Like I didn’t mean for my cousin to end up bald and covered in superglue, and I also didn’t mean to steal our neighbour’s dog and make him speak Russian. It’s not my fault. I can’t help it. I’m just a Magnet for Disaster…   (for info about this series, see Penny Dreadful)

About the author, Joanna Nadin

I grew up in Saffron Walden in Essex, a small town, where nothing much happened, and where I spent an awful lot of time wishing I was somewhere else, or someone else. And that’s what I write about now – for children, teenagers and young adults: Extraordinary things happening to very ordinary people, in very ordinary places. And about dreaming of other lives you might live. Continue reading Author Spotlight: Joanna Nadin, author of brand new Penny Dreadful series
