Book Series to Start This Summer

Article Type: 

School is out, the weather is hot, and Interabang Books is beckoning. What better time than summer to immerse yourself in reading a good series? The lazy, hazy days of summer allow the time and lack of distraction to get to know the places, characters and continuing sagas of a great children’s series. The feeling of disappointment in finishing a good book vanishes when one knows that another volume awaits, with the familiar characters ready to transport you along on another adventure.

Whether you enjoy some of the first classics that are still in print like THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN, THE HAPPY HOLLISTERS, THE HARDY BOYS, NANCY DREW, and A WRINKLE IN TIME, or you prefer a new classic like HARRY POTTER, THE PENDERWICKS, or A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS, or a new adventure like A TALE DARK AND GRIMM, ADA LACE ON THE CASE, or THE LEMONADE WAR, we have many great series with which you can pass the hot summer days.

Here are some of our favorite kids book series...
