Welcome to TweenCity!

This blog is designed to be a selection resource for children between the ages of 9-14, as well as a reader's advisory tool for both current and future librarians.

PLEASE NOTE: An appropriate age range is given for each title, however this is merely a suggestion. Children, especially tweens, read at many different levels which cannot be determined simply by age or grade level. Therefore, it is important to assess each child's reading level before suggesting titles. In addition, since this blog is designed for tweens only, some titles listed may also be appropriate for children older or younger than ages 9-14, but these ages will not be listed.

Ages 9-12: Elementary school level (Grades 3-6)
Ages 12-14: Middle school level (Grades 7-8)

Howe, Deborah, and Howe, James. Bunnicula. Atheneum, 1979. ISBN 978-0689307003. Ages 9-12.

Something is definitely different about that new bunny the Monroe’s brought home, according to Harold the dog and Chester the cat. He sleeps all day and escapes from his cage at night. He has pointy fangs and black fur that looks like a cape. He even hates garlic! But when all the vegetables start turning white, their juices completely sucked out, it’s up to Harold and Chester to determine once and for all if their furry friend is really a … vampire?! And when the Monroe’s won’t listen, Chester takes matters into his own hands, forcing Harold to come to the rescue of a cute little misunderstood bunny.
