Looking for some great Middle Grade Books? Reading Recommendations for June.

I’ve recently finished the third book in my Kangaroo Valley School series. It’s provisionally called ‘Lola in the Middle’ and it will be published by the illustrious Wombat Books in 2020. While you’re waiting, though, you’ll need something to read, so check these little babies out.

This looks fun. "Willow Moss, the youngest and least powerful sister in a family of witches, has a magical ability for finding lost things - like keys, or socks, or wooden teeth. Useful, but not exactly exciting . . . Then the most powerful witch in the world of Starfell turns up at Willow's door and asks for her help. A whole day - last Tuesday to be precise - has gone missing. Without it, the whole universe could unravel. Now Willow holds the fate of Starfell in her rather unremarkable hands." Perfect for fans of Cressida Cowell and Nevermoor.

For anyone who loves the original Little Women, or who wants to introduce a new generation to Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy, this could be something to get into. The March sisters encounter new friends, challenges, school dances, and more in this fresh, modern retelling of the perennial classic.

"This modern-day retelling is a fun addition for... young Little Women fans." -- School Library Journal

Greg Heffley is the most well-known middle school character in our household. Diary of a Wimpy Kid books are read and re-read, on constant rotation. I've always thought Rowley got a bad deal from Greg, so I'm very excited to see him get his own book this time around. We will definitely be getting this and reading it until the covers fall off -- guaranteed!
