Rating: ★★★★★

“Warriors” is a book series about cats that live in the wild. The first book, “Into the Wild”, features Rusty: A nice house-cat who lives with his humans. However, Rusty soon realizes there is a world beyong his yard. Rusty ventures into the wild and discovers a whole new community of wild cats. Rusty then abandons his easy life and goes to live with the wild cats. Will Rusty survive, or will the whole forest plunge into peril? This book is very interesting, and hooks you into the story as you go along. I would reccomend “Warriors” by Erin Hunter to you anyday! I hope you enjoy this book as much as I do!

We love that famous boy wizard as much as you do (maybe even more, judging by Karen’s recent dream). But there are tons of other amazing fantasy series out there, ready to transport you to Olympus, the Inkworld, Middle Earth, Redwall Abbey, and everywhere in between and beyond. Here’s a sampling (in no particular order).
