Any suggestions ?
She's read the unfortunate events series
She's read the new David wailliams, currently reading the secret garden , I'm out of ideas anything new out there or loved by your 10 year olds?

Michael Morpurgo, the tamer ones such as kensukes kingdom was a massive hit.
Jaqueline Wilson? Harry Potter?

Oh thanks the first one sounds good
She's read the Jacqueline Wilson and isn't bothered about HP, thanks:-)
Just thought She'd probably like new books to do with the new star wars Film

Mine went from the unfortunate events to Antony Horowitz (sp?)

The Goth Girl books by children's laureate Chris Riddell a well worth considering.

David Baddiels books for children have been popular as gifts for the girls I know that age - Parent Agency, Person Controller and his new one is Ani-Malcolm.

Also, just because, Ballet Shoes.

What about some of the books by Millie Slavidou. My boys enjoyed the one based in Greece and a mystery based in Wales but they are aimed at tweenage girls I think.

DD has asked for the Dork Diaries set.

She also likes the Tom Gates books.

Goth girl if she hasn't already read them and Dd recently read When Hitler stole pink rabbit as part of her year 6 curriculum and lived it.
The murder most unfortunate series is pretty good too as are Hamish books.

I've just asked DD12 what she loved reading aged 10...... Young Sherlock series, The Hunger Games trilogy (says she might have been 11 when she read them though), Lemony Snicket and she still loved Jacqueline Wilson

Glad people are recommending Goth Girl as just got it yesterday for my 10 year old niece. The cover and artwork attracted me, hoping she'll love it!
