Fans of mythical creatures and fantasy novels will enjoy soaring through the pages of author Tui T. Sutherland's New York Times bestselling book series, Wings of Fire.
"My 11-year-old has been enthralled by this fantasy fiction series since the very first book, so much so that I found myself waiting in the cold outside of a local bookstore, waiting for it to open, on the day The Hive Queen was released," says Christie Burnett, a teacher and mom of two.
The series follows the tales of dragon tribes and their battles, phrophecies, and friendships. Most of the books are written from the point of view of different young dragons with humanlike traits and emotions — making them incredibly relatable to young readers. (That said, the newest book, Wings of Fire: Legends: Dragonslayer, is written from the point of view of humans.)
These epic stories are known to hook kids on reading, and will get your middle grade reader more excited about books than ever.
