Which edition are you reading?
The same one I remember really liking it as a child. It's public domain, so I downloaded it for free on my Galaxy tablet, along with the complete Sherlock Holmes.

She likes Terry Pratchett, she's read A hat Full of Sky and Sourcery but I can't find any more at the Library. I'll go look at the book exchange again.

I've written down all the suggested authors, I should find some of the books

Has she read any of Madeleine L'Engle's books? My guys liked her series that starts with "A Wrinkle in Time." As for newer books, she might enjoy the Chet and Bernie mysteries starting with "Dog On It" or the Jan Karon Mitford series. Another series she might like would be the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters. They are mysteries set in Egypt and are quite good.

Thank you We have a very well stocked public library and I'm sure I'll find lots of the suggestions.
I've written it all down for future use. She should be busy with all of these for a long while!

Agatha Christie. Murder mysteries, Miss Marple or Poirot. Who-dun-its About as g rated as colenol mustard in the library with a dastardly weapon game. If she's read Harry Potter, this is lighter suspense than Potter. Besides, did you know Agatha Christie in her younger years was a woman surfer somewhere on the SA coast while on vacation.

Judy Blume books.

The Borrowers by Mary Norton, 5 books in the series. About little people who we donot see. Great for kids. Personally, I like Anne of Green Gables, never read until I was an adult. Nice Nice Nice.

READING books is such a treasure we can carry as we grow. ENCOURAGE your kids at this age, and they will continue to read forever

Thank you Whisk Caitlin loves reading so I don't need to encourage it but I do anyway.
All the woman in my family love to read and we all started very young. Hope Caitlin keeps her love for literature!

Connie Willis...Charles DeLint...

Look in the adult section for more Pratchett and if you can find his series, called here, The Bromiliad (Truckers, Diggers and Wings) 3 books, she will be enchanted.
