The Complete Chronicles of Narnia

An autumnal mood can’t be complete without somber reflection and deep otherworldly experiences, and for that CS Lewis’ Narnia universe fits the bill nicely. Up there with Middle Earth, Narnia features heroics, wide-eyed adventure and an undying narrative to transfix readers as they traverse seven tales of wonder starring Aslan, the White Queen, Mr. Tumnus and others. A classic.

Author: CS Lewis
Publisher: HarperCollins, 528 pages
Ages: 9-12 officially, for everyone if you ask us


Sam Katz on the Loose!

Like a more intelligent, infinitely perkier answer to Garfield, Sam Katz comprises numerous hijinx by a house cat, Sam Katz, on treks to all sorts of weird and exciting places. The book’s made of three dimensional constructs each with its resident activities, which should be enough to inject some fun and color into the drabbest fall day.

Authors: Frank and Vida Radice, Charles Fazzino
Publisher: Random House, 24 pages
Ages: 4-8


Encyclopedia Prehistorica: Dinosaurs

Perhaps part of a series in the making, this volume shone from the moment your faithful writer noticed it at the book mega store. You see, some of us used to be total Dino addicts in our formative years, and it’s time for the giants to make a comeback. Although skimpy on text, EP:D rules for sheer art via paper designs and other contraptions illustrating lizard supremacy. Get it to pre-empt the next Jurassic Park.

Authors: Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart
Publisher: Candlewick, 12 pages
Ages: 3-8


A-List: Back in Black

Friends have been talking about this teen series for some time, and it now seems the buzz was justified, with transformation into a major motion picture imminent. Combining The OC with a more Beverly Hillsian attitude, Back in Black features a cast of teen characters one can get used to following, mostly due to the author’s nifty style and knack for crafting pseudo-adult, yet safe, storylines.

Author: Zoey Dean
Publisher: Little and Brown, 304 pages
Ages: teens
