My ten year old niece is looking a new book series to spend her holiday money on ( I love that she is planning ahead). She has recently loved the Babysitters Club graphic novels and would appreciate any recommendations you all may have. Thank you!

mrp27 Try the friends series by Shannon Hale or anything by Raina Telegmeier 5d
Tamra My 11 year old daughter has recently really enjoyed the TBH series. It isn‘t technically graphic novel, but they are stories told via texting. She‘s also enjoyed the graphic novel adaptation of Jackie HaHa by James Patterson. She asked for #2 for Xmas. 😄 5d
EvieBee I liked this one, and there‘s a sequel coming out next summer! 4d
EvieBee Also this series! 4d
Jas16 @mrp27 @Tamra @EvieBee Thank you all so much! All of your suggestions look amazing! 4d

🎧 The TARDIS has been stolen. Doctor #2 is off on an adventure with Jamie to find the police box.

They follow clues to an old antiques shop where it becomes evident that IT‘S A TRAP!

Monster of the week? DALEKS!

They are looking for the “human factor”, something they feel will help them TAKE OVER THE UNIVERSE!

One of those old series that‘s still missing an episode.

Finished this audiobook this morning. It was about all the crazy things that boys do when they are young. The author‘s note at the end was really interesting. I really like when those are included in audiobooks. The narrator was also very good. #139 #BookSpinBingo #2 #BFC21 #BOOKED2021 Jewish author #20in4
