Easy Reader for 9 year old
My 9 year old son was struggling to find books that interested him, but at the same time were within his reading ability. Tree house was no longer interesting and Harry Potter was too difficult to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We spent about an hour looking at many chapter books and children's mystery series and stumbled on this great series of books. Harry was hooked! He read the first chapter before we got out of the store and devoured one book after another!! He seems to enjoy the variety of geography, the mystery and can relate to the character as a peer. He will likley complete the entire set by the end of first semester, highly recommended.

Inspired my son to become an avid reader!
My 5-year old son was an early reader but he never chose reading over all else until he discovered Jack Stalwart. These books quickly became an obsession for him -- as soon as each one arrived in the house, he would read it until he finished it. He especially loves the gadgets that Jack uses on his missions. The action is authentic but not violent or scary -- a perfect entry-level spy novel! My only complaint is that there are only 12 -- he's read them all!
