So a friend of mine asked me to recommend some books for her nephew. And since I was once quite the consumer of children's literature, I wrote down a list of highly recommended, very well written books. I enjoyed them as a kid, and I hope other kids will read them too.

Rowling Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Llyod Alexander: The Book of Three The Black Cauldron The Castle of Llyr Taran Wanderer The High King C.S.
