my DS3 is a good reader and still enjoys being read to. However, we can't seem to find any chapter books he likes. DS1 and 2 both liked Roald Dahl, Mr Gum, Narnia etc but everything we've suggested to DS3 he has shown no interest in.
He really likes Star Wars hmm so we would like to find some sort of science fiction suitable for an adult reading to him or for him to read to himself.
Any suggestions please?!

Astrosaurs. Dinosaurs have evolved to travel the world in space ships. Utterly boring for grown-ups, but the kids love them.

There are Star Wars books for children. I think they centre around Leia's children being trained as Jedi. I'll see if I can find a link.

Not sure if they are for 6 year olds though.

Star Fighters series by Max Chase, I think there are half a dozen of them. Probably not as good as Mr Gum for reading out loud though.
