It's good to see other people interested in this. . .
my English teacher gave me Sophie's World at the end of my seventh grade year. It's now the end of my 8th grade year and I've read it about five times. I wasn't actually aware that the author had written so much, but I'm going to have to go out and find some.
Any recommendations for my second?
The Solitaire Mystery... it's probably the most easy of his books to read... mushc like the story parts in Sophie's world. I love it!
At christmas, read 'The christmas mystery'... you don't get the same sense of magic if you read it at any other time of year.
