Every year more books are published than I can ever hope to read. Here are the ones I enjoyed best from the year 2000 -- and I'm sorry I was not able to write reviews for them all.

Picture books:

Middle readers:

  • Little Lit edited by Art Spiegelman and Françoise Mouly
  • Little Wolf's Haunted Hall for Small Horrors by Ian Whybrow
  • The Mystery of Mr. Nice by Bruce Hale

Young adult:

  • Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
  • The Circus Lunicus by Marilyn Singer
  • The Doll People by Ann M. Martin and Laura Godwin
  • Ereth's Birthday by Avi

  • Lord Brocktree by Brian Jacques
  • Magic Can Be Murder by Vivian Vande Velde
  • Silent to the Bone by E. L. Konigsburg
  • Wolf Tower by Tanith Lee
  • Year of the Griffin by Diana Wynne Jones

I would also like to mention some noteworthy older books that are back in print in new editions:
