#ChildrenDaySpecial--> Must Read Books for Children Part 3

Hi Friends,

In my list for today the first series is one that took the reading world by storm and changed the dynamics of the book market completely. This phenomenon was the Harry Potter magic comprising of 7 books. The next is Nancy Drew series which has undergone many changes since its release in 1930 and is so popular as to sell million copies per year with many TV adaptations and movies to its name. Next comes the Hardy Boys adventures which is a yet another popular series selling million copies, translated into over 24 languages and adapted for TV. The last series is Goosebumps, a horror adventure series by R.L. Stine that has never looked back since its release in 1992 and has already made it to many bestseller lists with a huge fan following comprising of mostly kids.

1) The Harry Potter Phenomenon:




Harry Potter thinks he is an ordinary boy. He lives with his Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and cousin Dudley, who are mean to him and make him sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. (Dudley, however, has two bedrooms, one to sleep in and one for all his toys and games.) Then Harry starts receiving mysterious letters and his life is changed forever. He is whisked away by a beetle-eyed giant of a man and enrolled at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The reason: Harry Potter is a wizard! The first book in the "Harry Potter" series makes the perfect introduction to the world of Hogwarts.

Rowling.


The summer holidays are dragging on and Harry Potter can't wait for the start of the school year.

Rowling has proved herself yet again to be a master storyteller.
