    I would definitely go for The Spiderwick Chronicles. I read them (and I'm older), but was still absolutely enthralled. Between Holly Black's writing and Tony Diterlizzi's illustrations, nothing can go wrong. Everything in this little series is richly imagined, and I enjoyed the journey every step of the way.

    If you're going for something a bit bulkier, though, I would do the Nancy Drew series. I also read those when I was little--they were the staple of my childhood literature, and Nancy Drew was practically one of my heroes. Basically, each book (there are lots) has a mystery of its own, and Nancy gets to solve it. Or, if you're looking for a boy, I would go for the Hardy Boys. This series is pretty much identical to the Nancy Drew series, except it's aimed for boys that would feel dumb reading Nancy Drew.

    Happy reading!

    It really depends on the age. The kids in my class love the "Don't Let the Pigeon" books. There are several now. The first graders in my class lover reading Junie B Jones at the end of the year. The second graders love the Spiderwick Chronicles. The third graders really like the Series of Unfortunate Events and The Chronicles of Narnia. The Box car Children are great for the 4th graders and they start actually being able to finish the Harry Potter Books.

    For boys, try The Hardy Boys.

    For girls, there is Nancy Drew and Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery. I read both of these as a child and they were probably my favorites. There are also the Little Women books (Louisa May Alcott) and Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

    For all kids, the Narnia books by CS Lewis, Frank L Baums Oz series and the books of Roald Dahl are classics.

    I live overseas and a very popular book series (mostly for boys) are the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz. They are based on a young spy working with the british secret service. The newest addition to the series is Snake Head.

    Well, I don't know what age you're talking about really, but I 'say the Harry Potter series are excellent and not just for children. Personally I think older kids/people will be able to appreciate it a lot more.
