Great book and reading sites

  • The Chock-Full, Eyes-Peeled, Independent Children's Books Site A yummy booksite in loud ice-cream colours, with loads of news and honest reviews.

  • Cool-reads Books for 10-15 year old readers by 10-15 year old reviewers. A great place to go if you're looking for new authors, as all the reviews are linked by subject, so if you know what kind of mood you're in, you can pick a book to suit. You can post your own reviews and comment on other peoples. You can also test your knowledge in the literature quiz. An excellent site.

  • Mrs Mad's Book-a-rama Loads of information about books and authors and a very long list of childrens authors links! You can submit your own reviews. Especially good for recommending books by age group.

  • Interviews with childrens authors from Allan Ahlberg to Benjamin Zephania In this cut-down internet version of the excellent Young Writers magazine.

  • The Children's Literature Webguide Internet Resources related to books for children and young adults - an easy to read and navigate site with loads of links to other resources. It's a Canadian site with a really personal feel. Check out the writer's latest links in the "What's New" section.

  • Stories from the Web A colourful site from Birmingham libraries, especially for 8-11 year olds. Lots of opportunities to chat and contribute poems, stories, articles and artwork - like the design a book cover gallery. Well worth a visit. There's also a site for 11-14 year olds.

  • Oxford University Press Children's Fiction & Funzone for very young readers
