I like Harry Potter, I know there's been lots of arguments and people getting their knickers in a twist with kids reading about wizardry and things, but you know what, at least with Harry Potter children are actually READING, instead of having their eyes glued to the TV or computer screen and playing useless violent games.
Books teach kids to use their imagination and the role playing they do whilst reading, playing with their mates is great. I was a total book worm when I was young, I was never found without my nose between the pages of a book.
I like adverturous stuff though, loved the Davinci Code, and completed the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice, love all that.
