There is no better way of spending a hot summer afternoon than reading a compelling book. Here are some suggestions!

Children’s reading levels vary widely, so these age groups are indicative only. Please read the first pages/chapter of a book on our website http://www.duckbill.in to check if you or your middle-grader will enjoy it.
