Books for Boys

A Listmania! list by cb (Minot, ND)
(VINE VOICE)   
The list author says: "Books for boys (Grade 3-6) are difficult to find - so I thought I would start a list. We have found so many books that were Harry Potter style but the writing was terrible. Great covers on those books but not worth reading. I will continue to add books as the school years rolls along."
