My 7 year old boy, with reading age around 9-10 years, is struggling to find fiction books he likes.
He loves Roald Dahl, and quite enjoys Jeremy Strong, but nothing else really grabs him.
He will read non fiction (particularly history and science) until it comes out of his ears, but I am a bit of a loss with fiction. I have tried all the books I read at that age, but he can't stand Enid Blyton and is left a bit cold by C S Lewis (think he's still a bit young). Won't touch Harry Potter.
He says there's nothing left in the school library he wants to read, and brings the same Roald Dahl books home each week (even though he has very well thumbed copies at home).
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
