Animorphs: The Invasion by K. A. Applegate
When Jake, Rachel, Tobias, Cassie, and Marco find a downed alien spaceship and its dying pilot, they learn two things:
- The Earth is being invaded.
- No one else knows about it, so it’s up to them to stop it.
After their encounter with the space alien, the kids are given a spectacular super power — they can transform into any animal they touch.
Will their new powers be enough to save the Earth?
What The Eleven-Year-Old thinks about it:
“The cover is much scarier than the book. This book isn’t nearly as creepy as it sounds. The story itself is amazing.”
The Notebook of Doom: Rise of the Balloon Goons by Troy Cummings
Shortly after moving to his new town, Alexander finds a notebook filled with top-secret information about the town’s flock of balloon goons. Can Alexander use the information in the Notebook of Doom to defeat a monstrous gang of twisted, arm-waving balloon guys?
Part of Scholastic’s early chapter book line, The Notebook of Doom mingles black and white illustrations with funny, easy-to-read text to keep newly independent readers turning the page.
Who The Eleven-Year-Old thinks would like it:
“Hilarious! This is a good choice for sci-fi or fantasy lovers of all ages, who want a funny, well-written, and moderately easy read.”
