Better Reading Kids brings you the Top 10 bestselling children’s book list every Monday morning.

Rick Riordan is one of the decade’s most celebrated kids and young adult authors. His newest book, the third in his The Burning Maze series features the beloved Lester, who must now journey to the Labyrinth – a burning maze with an Oracle at its centre, who may just hold the key to a return to godly glory.

Ahn Do reserves two spots on the list this week, with WeirDo #10: Messy Weird, and Ninja Kid #1: Nerd to Ninja. The latter introduces us to Nelson, who’s gone from nerd to ninja overnight. When Nelson finds out he’s the last ninja on Earth, the shenanigans that ensue will make you cry with laughter!

Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton also have two books on the charts this week! Terry’s Dumb Dot Story dives into the whacky world of imagination, within which we may find the clever Andy and Terry. This renowned book-writing duo has returned with some of their most bizzare stories yet, from the world’s most powerful whirlpool, to a penguin ice-skating rink, there’s nothing they haven’t thought of. Ages 7+.

In Simon vs. The Homosapien Agenda, Simon Spier is sixteen and trying to work out who he is – and what he’s looking for. But when one of his emails to the very distracting Blue falls into the wrong hands, things get all kinds of complicated. Because, for Simon, falling for Blue is a big deal . . .It’s a holy freaking huge awesome deal. This book is one of the most important of it’s kind. Number 4.

Minecraft Guide to Enchantments and Potions: An official Minecraft book helps kids with the danger that lurks around every corner in the geame, and the powerful tools and equipment you’ll need if you want to survive.

Nevermoor returns to our list! For those who don’t remember, Morrigan Crow is cursed. Born on an unlucky day, she is blamed for all local misfortunes, from hailstorms to heart attacks – and, worst of all, the curse means that Morrigan is doomed to die at midnight on Eventide.
