Back to school

Welcome back. I hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing summer holiday. Here is your chance to tell us what books you think we should all be reading this year. Are there any new authors that you think everyone should hear about? Is there a book that you have loved that you know other people will love too? We want to know, we need to know...

At the moment, my Top Ten essential books to read in Year Six are:

1. Dragon Keeper- Carole Wilkinson (it will make you cry!)

2. The Spook's Apprentice- Joseph Delaney

3. Mortlock- Jon Mayhew

4. Foul Play- Tom Palmer (there is a series of five of these!)

5. Hacker- Malorie Blackman

6. Out Of The Depths- Cathy Macphail (very spooky!)

7. The Brilliant World Of Tom Gates- Liz Pichon

OK, that seems to be only a top seven. Can you think of three more I could add to the list?

Could someone be incredibly clever and write a Top Ten books for Years Three, Four and Five?? It would be great to put it on the site for everyone to see.

    Well I think the rest for year 6 should be (this is just my opinion) an amazing adventure book : The Hobbit- J R R Tolkien ... The longest whale song- Jaqueline Wilson and Thief- Malorie Blackman :)

  2. well i think that year 6 should read jaqueline wilson books such as longest whale song and girls in tears and little darlings

  3. Tom Palmer is one of the best authors yet! Black op is getting on nicely, but theres some other books I enjoy reading: Horrid henry is good (read football fiend), Roald Dahl is suberb and JK Rowling is amazing.

  4. Never doubt Tom Palmer. PS If thomas the tank engine apears it's my cosin thomas

  5. I hate Jackicin wilson

  6. go for gold footy books
