Kids’ Chapter Book Round-Up, Plus a Horrid Henry #Giveaway!

Some great chapter books for kids and tweens have come across my desk recently. Check them out!



Hailey Twitch and the Campground Itch
By Lauren Barnholdt

Hailey Twitch and the Campground Itch is part of a delightful series for children ages 7-10. In this book, Hailey is excited about an upcoming camping trip! Unfortunately, her bossy sister Kaitlyn and her friend Maya are also coming. It’s a good thing that Hailey also has her best friend with her -- a magic sprite named Maybelle! But Maybelle’s magic can be pretty unpredictable, which makes for a very interesting camping trip. When Kaitlyn and Maya get stuck in a treehouse, will Maybelle’s magic be able to save them?



The Pink Locker Society: Girls in Charge
By Debra Moffitt

I’ve written about the previous books in The Pink Locker Society series, so I was really excited to learn that Book #4, Girls in Charge, is now out! You may recall that The Pink Locker Society consists of several middle school girls who advise their peers about topics that are important to them, like the PBBs -- Periods, Bras, and Boys! In this book, the main character Jemma is still crushing on Forrest, who doesn’t seem to return her affection. Things get complicated when Jemma must work with Forrest to create a “Blue Locker Society” for boys. As middle-school graduation nears, what will happen to the PLS?



Horrid Henry Wakes the Dead
By Francesca Simon

The last time my mother-in-law was visiting, she read a Horrid Henry book with my boys, and I kept hearing tons of laughter coming from their room! Henry is kind of a troublemaker, but you just can’t help laughing at his adventures. In this new installment in this series, Horrid Henry Wakes the Dead, Henry competes with his neighbor Moody Margaret for school president; conceives a plan to control the TV; battles his brother for dinosaurs; and persuades his brother to be in a magic show!
