Super-folders, let’s talk about Super Books!

Some Super-Folders have been telling me about books they like. I figured if we all posted our favorites here we’d end up with a list of some really great books!

I’ll start and you can join in by adding some of your favorite books in the comments.

Lizard Music by Daniel Pinkwater … I went nuts for this book the first time I read it and I still love it. Funny, but more than funny. If your school library doesn’t have this, tell the librarian to get it. They just reprinted it. if you’d like to listen to the author read it, you can download the audiobook for free from his Website.

Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin … My favorite recent book. An amazing story that springs from Chinese folklore but is retold by a modern master storyteller.

Marvin Redpost: Is He a Girl by Louis Sachar… My favorite of the Marvin books. Really genius. Louis Sachar is a big influence on my books.

I’ve got a million more, of course, but it’s your turn now. Tell us about your favorites…

Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan you should read that and Wayside by Louis Sachar

Oh that Percy Jackson … he just won’t leave me be.

Wayside School was a huge inspiration for me. All those seperate stories adding up to one big story… just like Origami Yoda!

A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket and Goosebumps Horrorland by R.l. Stine

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Lemony Snicket’s series was a big inspiration to me, too! But I’m too scared to read Horrorland!!

  lucario12321 wrote @

Goosebumps isnt scary it’s actually more funny than scary. In grade 3 I was scared of reading those books but now they are fairley good

I know Unfortunate Events is an old book. But I like the story.
