MY DAUGHTER DOESN'T LIKE TO READ. BUT  SHE RECENTLY BOUGHT A BOOK AT SCHOOL AND IS DELIGHTED WITH IT. I DISCOVERED THAT SHE AVOIDS "SAD" BOOKS BECAUSE THEY MAKE HER CRY AND FEEL SAD.

 SHE TOLD ME THAT SHE LIKES  "HAPPY BOOKS" , THOSE WHERE  MAKE HER  LAUGH AND FIND A  HAPPY ENDING.

COULD SOMEBODY GIVE ME SOME "FUN"  BOOK TITLES FOR A 11-12  YEARS OLD GIRL?

PLEASE, PM ME.

I APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.

Has she read the Dragon Princess series by E.D. Baker?    My daughter loved those - she's 13 now and has read them since 5th grade.

Ramona the Pest - my daughter loved Ramona as did my sister and I. Very funny - Ramona has a whole series by Beverly Cleary.

My daughter loved the Stink books, too - these are related to the Judy Moody books.  These are by author  Megan McDonald

My daughter has loved the Warriors series by Erin Hunter since the 8th grade.  How To Train Your Dragon books by Cressida Cowell are also good, as well as Septimus Heap books by Angie Sage, "Magyk," "Flyte" and "Physik."  Several books by Chri D'Lacey ae also good, they are about  miniature clay dragons that can come to life, the first one is "Fire Within."

Hope this helps!
