Mallory Blackman has a whole series my 12 year old son went through like fire. Callum, Noughts and Crosses, Knife Edge, Checkmate, Double Cross. Not sure of the order. He is a very fast reader, likes comedy, adventure, mystery. Doesn't like Fantasy.
Sophie McKenzie has a whole load he has read. Set up, Hostage, The Thief, The Resue, Hunted, Double Cross, Hit Squad, Girl missing, Sister
David Walliams has a few funny books my son keeps on his shelf.
Dermot Milligan - Donut Dairies - comedy
Mr Gum books, read those when he was 10 years old.
The whole of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid range - comedy
Loves Simpsons Cartoon strip books he has them on his shelf and reads and sometimes reads again. He started reading them a few years ago, have them in the library. I used to worry about him watching the Simpsons but I have lost count of the times I have asked my son where he learnt something I hadn't taught him, all down to Simpsons on TV I was amazed the interesting and intellectual things he has picked up from there.
I'm grateful he has 6 books sitting on his shelf waiting to be read :) phew!! He should be ok for 4-5 weeks. ha, ha!!
I will keep an eye on other recommedations from everyone too! THANKS.
