He is a very good reader and suitable adult fiction would be fine.

Especially modern fiction, but any ideas gratefull received.

Thank you

Phillip Pullman, Terry Pratchett, Michael Morpurgo...

The Sherlock Holmes short sories are excellent. The longer ones are a bit scary!

Thank you. Sorry for disappearing, RL in way.

He seems to like all sorts, he has read some Terry Pratchett and Phillip Pullman. Michael Morpurgo his younger siblings have and I think he thinks them too young.

I might try the Sherlock Holmes.

Black Swan Green by David Mitchell - written for adults but the main character is a teenage boy growing up in the 80s so good nostalgic stuff for parents, too!

detective stories- not just Sherlock Holmes, but Agatha Christie and Ruth Rendell

the Rumpole books

classics like The Three Musketeers

dd enjoys P.G. Wodehouse
