Before and After Harry Potter (Grades 3-5)

It was such fun to see SAVING THE GRIFFIN turn up on a master list of fifty or so books for kids to read before and after Harry Potter.  Susan Fichtelberg and Bonnie Kunzel pulled this list together for their June, 2011 ALA presentation.    A quick cruise through Susan’s website, Encountering Enchantment, made it clear that she’s extremely knowledgable about fantasy and science fiction.  In fact, School Library Journal thought that her Encountering Enchantment: A Guide to Speculative Fiction for Teens should be a part of every YA collection.

So if you’re trying to find some quality fantasy novels for middle grade readers, you should really check out this list!
