The Contenders: Page 2

21 Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

The best sci-fi book series for 12-14year olds

Totatly the best!

My 2nd favorite book seireis of all time... But nithing surpass the 39 clues

22 The Chocolate Box Girls by Cathy Cassidy

The chocolate box is a great series that have romance, sisterhood and chocolate all mixed into one. Good preteen read for girls. Highly Recommend it. Recommended for 12-15 year old girls.

These books are great I just kept reading and reading

Definitely for preteens and teens, so realistic and interesting.

23 The Adventures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey

Best Book series must buy and be higher

I hate you PlayStationfan66

One of the worst book series of all time due to major complaints by the Parents Television Council founder. I'd rather be watching The Paperboy by Dav Pilkey (Weston Woods) on VHS, playing Girl Talk Date Line, listening to Jennifer Paige, playing a game, writing my novel series on Sissy William's desktop or reading Ginnie by Catherine Woolley. - playstationfan66

24 I Funny by James Patterson
25 Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

Great, but not as much a children's book. Better for teens, they have some, shall we say, "advanced" concepts. If you like the story but not the advanced-ness in the last couple books, watch the movies. These books are amaze, though.

Princess Diaries was very good, but the last 5 books OLDER READERS ONLY! Recommend for 15-18 year old girls.

This book is pretty cool with such a great author. We love you Meg! I never knew they would come ninth, but since this isn't a teen top ten, I would probably say it is about right. - taylorswift24878

It is rubbish

26 Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz

Its awesome! Full of action! All of the books in the series are so thrilling... You just don't feel like stopping!

You will be lost in them until you finish them all. Exceptionally realistic and challenging for the children.

Really awesome,thrilling and simply epic... The second best book series of all time behind harry potter

27 Dork Diaries by Rachel Renee Russell

I love that book! It's original, funny, and awesome! Not many books are like this so if you like drama, check it out!

Dork diaries is original, funny, and awesome! It can be dramatic at times but if you like that kind of stuff, check it out!

Yep, yep, yep. This NEEDS to be in at LEAST the top 5. I love the new book, Drama Queen.

Thanks! I love this show!

28 Alice Miranda by Jacqueline Harvey

Alice-Miranda is a great character, very Sofia the First-ish. I recommend them for 7-10 year olds, but I am 13 and I enjoy these books a lot, and I consider my self a very strong reader. It is hard for me to find good books at my reading level, because I am at a high school junior reading level, but I am going in to eighth grade. The books at my level are either not interesting, or they are inappropriate, so I stick to books that interest me and these are great for that. Love the concept, so cute!

29 His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman

I've come back to these a couple of times. I adore Pullman's mix of classical and original mythology, his shady characters and the many mature messages.

Makes me wish I'd picked up Northern Lights when it was published and I was 10 years old, rather than a decade later.

One of the most amazing books I have ever read. His Dark materials is an extremely underrated novel. I would press this book onto any 12 year old who wants to read quality books (unlike Hunger Games and Twilight)

His Dark Materials is a wonderful series that really gets you thinking. Good for 8-12 year olds.

30 The Sisters Grimm by Michael Buckley

Great book. I love the characters. I've read Harry Potter but this book for me was better. SO GOOD. People say only popular books are good like Harry Potter but it's not the best there are so many other books people haven't read and that's why the books are so low.

Much better than Harry Potter. There are so many books in the world. Harry Potter is not the best book. Try it out, Honestly, I'm shocked how amazing this book is.

BEST BOOK EVER! Better than harry Potter better than anything in the world

31 Key to Rondo by Emily Rodda

Key to Rondo is a fantastic series, where you explore the world inside the music box. Draws you in immediately. Recommended for 8-13 year olds,

Yeah, this was okay...but where the hell is Deltora Quest on this list? It is a gazillion times better than all the series on this list COMBINED. Well, apart from Harry Potter and Warriors. Please, if someone sees this, try and find a way to put Deltora Quest on this list. Did Key to Rondo have an anime made for it? No, but Lief, Barda and Jasmine were so damn amazing that THEY got one. Point proven, explanation over.

32 Deltora Quest by Emily Rodda

A perfect fantasy series for young children.

33 Lunar Chronicles
34 Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce

Put on the top of this list that just blew me I have 8 of those books

This book is great funny on so many levels great book

Everybody is awesome except francis the nerd

34s my favorite number but this should be number 1

35 Elementia Chronicles by Sean Fay Wolfe
36 Bone by Jeff Smith

Bone appeared in Disney Adventures not too long ago as a comic strip. - playstationfan66

I read out from boneville all the way to half of ghost circles in one whole day... I can't STOP READING IT

37 The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer

The best series to put fairly tails to pre teens minds

Should be in the top ten

38 Tom Gates by Liz Pichon

Why isn't this at 1? Really funny, creative and the writing and drawing is brilliant. No wonder Blue Peter calls L. Pichon the Queen of Doodles just for writing this book!

I like it cause it really funny and creative even though I am a girl


39 Tales of the Frog Princess by E.D. Baker

This book was the main inspiration for The Princess and the Frog (2009). One of the characters (shown in the feature film) is a good alternative to the character Princess Emeralda/Emma: Princess Maddy/Tiana (voiced by Anika Noni Rose). - shelleyduvallfan10

Tales of the Frog Princess -> The Princess & the Frog (Disney) - playstationfan66

40 The Sisters Eight by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

My daughter hated reading until we found this series of books. It has fantasy, action and it involves octuplets with special powers. What more does a young girl want to rad. Excellent reads I even foundmyself reading them.
