Friendship cliques and bus stop bullies, schoolyard turf wars and classroom chaos. All that and more awaits young readers in these engaging school stories. Encouraging kids to read can be hard, but these brilliant books, written by some of the best authors around, will have young readers turning off the TV, shutting down the computer and curling up with their book for hours on end in order to get to the final page. Young readers will laugh, they’ll cry, and they’ll laugh some more as they immerse themselves in the madcap school story adventures, many of which they will be able to relate to (and maybe even learn from!).
