Would like to introduce two books that are suitable for both kids and adults:
1) The little prince
2) Sarah - Friend of a Feather
Tess Dali - The Band of Loren - if your children like Harry Potter, they will love this one. It is suitable for children ages 9-14yres and is available form Amazon.
Also a great one is "The Wonderful Adventures of Ozzie the Sea Otter". It is almost 100 pages long, with large full color illustrations on every page. Great message and very entertaining!

2. Kiss By Jacqueline Wilson
3. Scarlett By Cathy Cassidy
4. The Secret Garden By Frances Hodgson Burnett
5. The Illustrated Mum By Jacqueline Wilson
Just finished reading Every Soul a Star by Wendy Mass - recommended by my 9 year old daughter. Great reading for 9-12 year olds - particularly girls, though it's not a really "girly" book...and good reading for their parents as well.
If your kids enjoyed Harry Potter, thet might also like:
