For our children we will always look for the best. The best kindergartens, schools, friends and of course books.
The number of authors writing for kids is numerous, but I really have heard a lot about Philip Pullman (the British writer) and His Dark Materials trilogy. He has been called the bestselling author for several times and I decided to get acquainted with his writing.
All I can say is that His Dark Materials series is really the best for children. Some people say that the books are too scary for children and contain a lot of details that should not be known by kids, but that is not true. Northern Lights, Subtle Knife and Amber Spyglass have everything a child needs in books. There is a lot of magic, adventures and a happy end. All in all the books were interesting to read even for me. Besides, in 2007 the trilogy was called the best book for children for the last 70 years.
