Thanks in advance for any information you may have

I would like to find as many as possible

The library - they are free!

otherwise charity shops always have loads of children's books in

thanks all

Yes I should have worded it better
I want to find out about anna fine books and choose which would be right to help me daughter further her reading

also I'm not sure how many books roald dahl wrote for children and if there are any to avoid

The Book People,(online). I got all of Roald Dahls books for less than a tenner. It's a bit hit and miss. Try Red House too.

Amazon have Anne Fine from a penny
The same for Michael Morpurgo
and is slightly more expensive

The Book People are good for bargain sets of authors.

I would head down to the library and see which ones your dd likes the look of
There is also a summer challenge which she can join and get stickers and a medal at the end as an incentive to read over the summer

summer reading challenge held nationally in libraries over the summer hols

Pruners! I missed you at the picnic! Did you go? [sorry for hijack]

TrinityRhino Sat 26-Jul-08 10:07:21

thanks smile

nell thats a great link
you can look inside them too

ruty Sat 26-Jul-08 10:09:42

btw TR i would second the library recommendation. They should be able to order books they don't have...

Glad to be of help... The 1p Amazon books are generally fab, but you can get stung on the P&P so beware if you decide to go with them

Anne Fine's website might help you and your daughter choose something new

TrinityRhino Sat 26-Jul-08 10:12:03

wow dahl wrote alot
but what the hell is 'switch bithc' all about lol

TrinityRhino Sat 26-Jul-08 10:12:36

Thanks smile

I would second the book people. They do huge bundles for a few quid. You can get all of Roald Dahls fro £9.99 - but they are hit and mis WRT to stock.

I think they do packages of Anne Fines as well.

Unfortunately they don't seem to be in stock ATM

TR - we are also doing Team Read here. The only difference being that they can choose any books fromteh library (it is a small library though) - so they don't have to be on the list.

Also remember if your daught wants something which isn'rtin the local library you should be able to reqest it free for a child.

TrinityRhino Sat 26-Jul-08 10:18:03

really dontneedanything
wow thats good
I'm alwasy afraid tyo go to the library because I never remember to take things back and have to pay full price for them [twat emoticon]

ruty Sat 26-Jul-08 10:29:42

LOL TR there is that. I'm like that with DVDs. Our local library has a great children's corner and a little garden so i have to set in my head a regular date to go each fortnight or something if i want to remember to take the books back.
[Pruners what a shame i should have given you my number. I had to leave early and kept confronting women on my way out who were approaching the gathering and asking, 'sorry, are you Pruners?' blush

Or try Read It Swap It on the net - swap books with people for free!

Also I think overdue books are free. The key is to make sure that you issue them on a childrens card.
