Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede: This teen series features a full cast recording and four great stories featuring wizards, dragons, princesses and kings. The first book in the series, “Dealing with Dragons“, features Princess Cimorene, who does not follow the traditional path. In fact, she decides to move in with a dragon rather than marry the prince!
For some great humor with a book that will soon be a movie, try “A Walk In The Woods” by Bill Bryson. Read by the author, this entertaining story is about Bryson’s own experience walking along the Appalachian Trail with his old friend Stephen Katz, along with some history and ecology too.
For a little bit younger reader, try “Wonder” by R. J. Palacio. This is an award winning book about Auggie who is about to enter 5th grade. Not that entering the 5th grade isn’t challenging enough, but Auggie has never attend school before, partly because of his very visible facial deformities. A must read for all ages.
