The Top 50 Kids’ Books for 2019 shows that older readers are completely won over by a good series particularly if fantastical or funny and Harry Potter, the Treehouse series, WeirDo, Dog Man and Alice Miranda amongst others have once again made an appearance on the list. You can be assured they will tempt any reluctant reader.
Roald Dahl ruled the Top 10 in the older readers category with three titles voted favourites. Local writers Jacqueline Harvey and Jessica Townsend also made the Top 10 for older readers. New to the list are Whisper by Lynette Noni and Lenny’s Book of Everything– both Australian and award winning in the last 12 months.
