      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!

    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.
