DS has always loved books but he us getting bored with overly simple ones and I want to give him a selection if books for Christmas so thought I'd start planning now.

His favourite books are the pirate dinosaur series, Octonauts (though probably more because of the tv programme, Harry and his Bucuresti of dinosaurs and an usborne see inside castles.

He also loves childrens refence books about sea creatures, trucks/diggers etc, dinosaurs and castles but I'm generally thinking about fiction.

He's got a book with simple chapters in so I'm not completely against chapter but they do tend to lose some pictures as a result.

I feel like I always go for the more obvious choices, or tv tie ins or more of the same so would love your suggestions.

Bucaresti, whatever it means, was meant to read "bucket full".

Dinosaur cove are fairly simple chapter books, some pictures
I always find myself recommending alfie books because ds1 loved them and the pictures are just gorgeous
I think there is a series called pirate cove as well
Usborne have lots of fiction of varying difficulty, try their young readers series 1 for simple chapters and lots of colour pictures

I always recommend the Yakari & the great eagle about native american boy - fab pictures.
Mudpuddle farm series for first chapter book - get the 6 in 1 for a bargain.
Sea Captain Ned (TV's Koala brothers) good story about making the best of what you've got + colour pics on every page.
Dinosaur cove books a big hit here with DS just 7 but there are lots of dino names to stumble over.

Oh he adores dinosaur names and knows quite a few so he might like that!
