Colin Thompson’s series The Floods is a captivating story about a family of wizards and witches. It is amazing!!!! Join Nerlin, Mordonna, Merlinmary, Satanella, Winchflat, Betty, Morbid & Silent and Valla as they go on all sorts of crazy adventures!

My Australian girl
This is a series I was particularly drawn to. They have very good plots, and are very educational as they teach about history, showing a timeline of several young girls living in significant times in Australian history. Any girl will like this, as I did, but they do have cliffhangers and are very short.
Where to borrow: Woden, cannot find anywhere else, know from experience.
Verdict: GREAT PLOT!
Age group: 6-9
