AFTER POTTER - GREAT READS FOR HARRY FANS HUNGRY FOR ADVENTURE

Abstract (Document Summary)

"In a way, the premise is very similar," [John Peters] says, comparing Charlie to [Harry Potter]. "But its a little darker. The school is pretty unpleasant, and it has some dark secrets." (In case youve wondered: Charlie came out after Harry did - the first book in the Bone series bowed in 2003.)

"MAGYK," the first book in the new "Septimus Heap" series by Englishwoman Angie Sage, is another of Peters picks for Harry- heads.

[Peter Glassman] also likes to turn Potter lovers on to some classic series. For kids over 10, he recommends Lloyd Alexanders Prydian Chronicles, which starts with 1964s "THE BOOK OF THREE," and features a young man who, like Harry Potter, grows older in each adventure, as he seeks his destiny.
