Jasmine | 160 comments Welcome to Children’s Fiction 2.0.
We are both very excited to be continuing this great group and embark in some remarkable children’s literature together. There will be changes, of course, as we’ve lost some of the former contributors but we are excited to gain some new readers as we discuss some excellent children’s works in fiction. We also have lost the previous list as well as the past books covered by this group; we apologize in advance if there are any repeats. Please take the opportunity to introduce yourself, especially if you are new and if you have any suggestions, we’d love to hear them. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the co-moderators, Jane & Jasmine. Our intention is to begin again in January 2014 and start with the classic, Treasure Island.

Do you want this thread to host the nominations? If so, my first nom. is Tom's Midnight Garden, by Philippa Pearce, a time-travel fantasy adventure I've been meaning to read for a long time now. Judging by the other work I've read by the author, it'll be a relatively quiet & subtle bit of literature with provocative ideas we can discuss together.

Cheryl (cherylllr) | 6183 comments Mod
Btw, I do look forward to Treasure Island - somehow I've never gotten around to reading it.


message 4: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine | 160 comments Yes, please post your suggestions! As mentioned the previous compiled list has been lost. Also we would like to be a bit more whimsical in our choices and not setting particular genres per year. We'd like to add subjects that we haven't discussed as much in the past (including fantasy). I will begin a thread of the running list when it gets more populated.


message 5: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine | 160 comments You are not alone, neither Jane nor I have read it. We also discussed Wonder (which is a newer very popular book - my 10 year suggested it to me) to be the Feb read.


message 6: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine | 160 comments Also please note that Treasure Island is free for kindle users.

I'm so happy you two are reviving the club!!! Thank you!

I am hoping to participate when the selections strike my fancy (and time permits). It would be great to see more classics and fantasy books on the list, too! :-)

I read "Treasure Island" years ago and loved it! I will see what I can remember and look forward to the discussion. (It really is worthy of a re-read but I don't have time right now.)

Londa (londalocs) | 47 comments Hi! I am glad to see this club revived as well. I don't think I participated in the last one, but I read along sometimes.

I will join you all for Treasure Island as I have never read it either.

Since you all are taking nominations, here are some from my TBR list.

Sounder Edit: I see it is a Newbery, so it will get read here eventually
Bo at Ballard Creek
Same Sun Here
The Scarecrow and His Servant
War Horse
A Nest for Celeste: A Story About Art, Inspiration, and the Meaning of Home

Vanessa (nesshawk) | 13 comments Hi there! Being new to Goodreads, I am in the dark about all the changes you all have experienced recently, so I am just thrilled to be joining at the right time for all these reading group revivals! I appreciate your dedication to children's literature, as with three children of my own, this is what fills our shelves and reading time! Thanks, Jane and Jasmine! Looking forward to reading along.


message 10: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine | 160 comments Thanks Londa, welcome back! I will add your suggestions to the list, however Same Sun Here was covered by the past Fiction Group and was read less then a year ago! Can't wait to hear what you think of Treasure Island!

Ahhh... that is probably how it got on my list in the first place :0) Thanks for the welcome and for adding the others to the list.


message 13: by Tricia (new)

Tricia Douglas (teachgiftedkids) | 312 comments I'll read anything. Treasure Island is a good start since I've never read it before. Shame on me!


message 14: by Tricia (new)

Tricia Douglas (teachgiftedkids) | 312 comments Yes, Same Sun Here was read just a while ago. I've also read War Horse and seen the play and movie. They are all amazing stories. There are two sequels too. This author has oodles of books that are wonderful historical fiction selections. We should definitely read something by him.

I was amazed at how many people posted bad reviews of Wonder. I liked it a lot and I believe it is well worth reading.

I am glad that you want to include some fantasy books, because that is a genre I really enjoy reading.
Some very good fairly recent fantasy books include:
Dragon Run
Bad Unicorn
Dragonborn
Magicalamity
Ivy's Ever After
Under the Green Hill

P. W. Catanese wrote a very good trilogy called "The Books of Umber."
Charlotte Sometimes is a classic time slip fantasy.
And a couple of authors who have written numerous fantasies:
Diana Wynne Jones and Lloyd Alexander.
I especially liked Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain and Jones' Howl's Moving Castle.

This is going to be an obscenely long list, as I went through both my own bookshelves etc. and tried to remember/recall some of the books that were on the erstwhile master list. The books are in no particular order (there are American, Canadian, British, Australian selections, and both older and more recent books). Not all of these books will necessarily be in current print, and while I have tried to not put in any Newbery books, some might have slipped in accidentally. I would also suggest to the moderators that they take this list (cut and paste it) off-site, just in case I do end up leaving GR in the future (I would not want the titles to be lost).

The Ghosts is on my list here's a note I made to remind myself why:

"Four, yes 4, members of What's the Name of that Book, have sought this. Also, in the Children's Books group, I've learned that The Amazing Mr. Blunden and The Ghosts are the same book."

Gundula says it's a good book, too. ;)

David | 101 comments I hope to chime in when Treasure Island is read. It was a favorite of mine and I re-read it several times. I wonder if it is more of a boys book in some ways? Looking forward to discussing it and also some fantasy. And I very much enjoyed Wonder.

I just started reading one of the books I put on my mega-list, King of Shadows (by Susan Cooper who wrote The Dark is Rising and its sequels). Very enjoyable story so far about a 20th century boy-actor being transported to 1599 and meeting and acting with William Shakespeare (definitely a book to consider for a group read).


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

Is there a group for science and knowledge related books for children. I would also like to know if fiction books for children are further classified into age-group ?


message 31: by Kathryn, The Princess of Picture-Books (new)

Kathryn | 5667 comments Mod
Upma, in months past the Picture Book Club has selected non-fiction topics/books and some of those have been science-based. You can explore the PBC folder to see the past themes. Most if these books are suitable for ages 4-8 though some of the non-fiction works are more up to age 10.


message 32: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine | 160 comments We could also start a thread of science and knowledge Children's reads however I'm not sure it should be under the Fiction Club's header.

2 nights ago, my daughter grabbed The Boy Who Loved Math: The Improbable Life of Paul Erdos and it was a great biography for kids. Other favorites of my kids in that category are the Oscar series Oscar and the Moth: A Book About Light and Dark.


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks Jasmine. We can certainly make another group if there no no such group exists so far. My another suggestion is to show them age-wise.


message 34: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine | 160 comments Well so far this has been a wonderful year in the Fiction Club 2.0. Jane announced that this month will be another children's mystery for October, Chasing Vermeer. One that seems to have been on quite a few readers to-read list. We look forward to hearing your thoughts.
In discussing the last few months of the year with co-moderator, Jane, we talked about how hard it sometimes is to get to reading for the months so close to holiday craziness. Therefore we have determined that we will 'try' a November/December read for the last months of 2014. The choice to close out 2014 will be The Lost Hero. Riordan has been a requested author for some time and given the size of the novel we thought the double month time frame may make it easier for readers during a busy time.
We will begin January (or end December) with a polled readers choice. Stay tuned!

Right; we're not sure exactly why the hosts let it expire. Beverly has kindly agreed to host another club that is somewhat of a replacement; please check out her "Miscellaneous Club." We've been enjoying small discussions of many recent award winners there lately.
