Hi, just wondering if the rainbow fairies series of books would be suitable for 8 year olds. Considering for party bags?? Thank you x

Too young for most 8 year olds, tbh. Peak readership 5-7 I think; certainly my dds had fixated to charity by 8yo.

Donated to charity....autocorrect!

Agree, my dds don't like them now (7 and 8). How about something like Enid Blyton or Rhoald Dahl books?

I think 8 is too old.

Agree with the others on the Rainbow Fairies. How about something like this instead?

Most households with DDs that age will have scores of those fucking books already. (If there were just one or two series, we'd probably all say how great they are as an easy read. But now it's in the hundreds, they produce strong reactions).

I think JiltedJohnsJulie's suggestion is a good one - also have a look at The Book People and see what sets they have at the moment and split those into the party bags.

Ooo not MM.Many kids aren't keen on the eternal misery.

What do you suggest then retro? smile

The Book People have 15 Roal Dahl books at 15.99 Any good?

agree - rainbow fairies are probably not a good idea.
roald dahl - better, but everyone has them already!
