Best Book Series for Boys

A Listmania! list by zazz (Princeton, NJ and Claremont, CA)
The list author says: "Finding good book series for boys isn't as easy as it is for girls. Everyone knows about the Harry Potter book series, which appealed to girls and boys. But did you know there are other excellent book series for tween boys out there? Here’s a list of great series books for middle school boys. If your school has accelerated reading tests, you will be glad to know these books are on the AR list so your reader will get AR points.

Just like Harry Potter, several of these book series has a movie either out or in the works. Also, most have boxed sets available for great deals on Amazon.
