I'd love some inspiration for my 11 and 6 year old sons and 9 year old daughter.

11 year old has loved: Malorie Blackman, Wimpy Kid, David Walliams, Anthony Horowitz, Calvin and Hobbes

9 year old has loved: David Walliams, Judy Moody, Daisy and the Trouble With, some Jacqueline Wilson, Spy Dog, Lost Puppies/Kittens/Ponies

6 year old is Orange band and has read lots of Dr Seuss green back books and likes to listen to Roald Dahl, Horrid Henry, Guiness Book of Records

I buy a lot of books for the holidays, I think:

DS1 (8):
Avatar the Last Airbender Comics: The Promise 1-3 and The Lost Adventures
Read Me and Laugh: A funny poem for every day of the year
The Lego Ideas Book
The Hobbit Annual (to celebrate him hopefully finishing The Hobbit this year).

DD1 (Almost 6):
Alexandra’s Scroll: The Story of the First Hannukah
Princeless Comics, Volume 1 [really good, would recommend for anyone, particularly girls, I think it would be fine for a 9 year old - I enjoyed it!]
The Pokemon Annual
Miss Zee Colouring Books
Goldilocks (Jump at the Sun)

DD2 (3)
Mirabelle and Maud
Pretend You’re a Cat
The Doctor Who Annual
Miss Zee Colouring Books
God Made the World (Jump at the Sun)

DS2 (Will be 1 - some may go for his birthday. He needed some not trashed board books as most of the others have already gone through 3...):
Global Babies
Cradle Me
Full, Full, Full of Love
I am God’s Paintbrush
Star Trek Book of Opposites
The Horrible Science Annual (They are buy 1 get the second for a pound so I had to buy an even number wink)

I also have bought A Life Like Mine: How Children Live Around the World, Children Just Like Me: A Unique Celebration of Children Around the World, Dr Seuss - Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? and not decided who will get what yet blush.
