    Default Book for 9yr old?

    Looking for books that are suitable for a 9yr old girl to read.
    I saw some Nancy Drew books in big w and I remember loving these when I was a kid.
    Just don't really know what a typical 9yr old is capable of reading?
    The nancy Drew was in the "younger readers 8yr +" section.

    Any of popular books you could recommend?

    I would say go for it - Enid Blyton books have had a make over too.

    My DS is 8, he reads andy Griffiths, Roald Dahl and is about to start Harry potter books.

    My DD is nine and has recently finished
    The BFG, The Witches and Matilda by Roald Dahl.
    Hating Alison Ashley by Robin Kline.
    The Borrowers by Mary Norton.

    She also got through a lot of my old Baby-Sitters Club books!

    Thanks everyone! That's a great help. I will go shopping for my niece tomorrow.

    Can't wait for my DD to be old enough to read all my baby sitters club books ☺️

    My nine year old also loves Goosebumps and Diary of a Wimpy Kid (although she tells me the 5th one says santa isn't real in it so be careful if the kid still believes. Mine doesn't.)
    I hated Dork Diaries so avoid those! I thought they'd be like wimpy kid but the part I read was all mobile phones/make-up/looking pretty etc. My DD hasn't asked to get another one either.

    If she likes horses why not the silver brumby books by Elaine Mitchell? Or black beauty.
    Harry potter could be good depending on how good a reader she is, because it starts off quite easy but as you progress through the books they do get quite a bit trickier.

    She's probably old enough for The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe?

    When I was that age I loved Paul Jennings & Roald Dahl books.

    Hating Alison Ashley by Robyn Klein was my favourite book in late primary school.
