If you're wanting to experience, share or gift that immersive reading feel that a certain series is famous for, but would rather avoid the problematic world-views surrounding it, here are some of our much loved, go-to books for truly inclusive, joyful and page-turning middle grade fiction!
Many of these books are part of series (and isn't there a particular hunger attached when knowing there is MORE to be read about a set of characters?) and you can usually find the other titles by clicking on 'more by this author' under the author's name on each book's page (if not, send us an email!). Others are one-off wonders to be loved and re-read.
All of them burst with magic, exploration and a will for everyone to be welcomed.
