9 books I would give my little brother for Christmas

9 books I would give my little brother for Christmas

With Christmas coming, I thought it might be helpful to share some books I think would be good to give as gifts. Book Boy Junior is my nine-year-old brother, and these are some books I think would be good for him, or any other nine-year-old boy. Guess which one of these books I’m getting my brother for Christmas?

Great books for your little brother for Christmas

Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Diaper Overload

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Diper Overlode by Jeff Kinney. The Wimpy books just keep on coming, but they all deliver what a kid expects and that’s a fun read.

The first to die at the end is a great book to give your brother for Christmas

The First to Die at the End by Adam Silvera. This is the prequel to the TikTok buzz They Both Die at the End (which my brother has ready) and it’s a worthy stand-alone.

Spaceboy by David Wailliams

Spaceboy by David Wailliams. Could you ever imagine being as successful as David Wailliams? Every book he writes is just so good. I reviewed another of his books here.

The Stupendously Spectacular Spelling Bee by Deborah Abela is another great book to gift your brother for Christmas

The Stupendously Spectacular Spelling Bee by Deborah Abela. My blogging friend Jazzy reviewed this one and it sounds really good.

Danny Best - Never Wrong by Jen Storer and Mitch Vane

Danny Best: Never Wrong by Jen Storer and Mitch Vane. I’m actually not going to give him this one because he’s already reading it to review for the blog, but he’s liking it so I think that other little brothers would also like it.

If he hasn't got it already, The Turners - Camp Freakout is a great book to give your brother for Christmas

The Turners: Camp Freakout by Mick Elliott. Book Boy Junior loved the first book in this series (his review is here), and this is the second.

Space Demons by Gillian Rubenstein

Space Demons by Gillian Rubenstein. I read about this book on Children’s Books Daily, which is a website where I sometimes review books. Lily, who reviewed the book, made it sound really interesting, so I think I would give it to Book Boy Junior so I could read it myself.

Adam Spencer's Number Crunchers

Adam Spencer’s Number Crunchers by Adam Spencer. If you read my review of Adam Spencer’s Big Book Of Numbers, you would know how much I like this author. This new book has lots of games and puzzles in it and I think Book Boy Junior would really like it. Plus he’s my Aunty Bronny’s mate from uni, so she rates him.

The Unforgettable What's His Name by Paul Jennings

The Unforgettable What’s His Name by Paul Jennings. I thought that this book would be perfect for my brother because it is funny, clever and imaginative, much like all of Paul Jennings’s other books.

These are good too!

Other books that little brothers might like that we have already reviewed (click links for reviews):

Artie and The Grime Wave by Richard Roxburgh

The 78-Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton
