ABOUT THIS BOOK

Let the adventures begin!

What do the Magic Tree House, Junie B. Jones, A to Z Mysteries, Andrew Lost, and Nate the Great series have in common? Not only are the main characters spunky and lovable kids whose exciting adventures have captivated readers for decades—they’re also all found in one place in the Favorite Series Starters boxed set. This is the first-ever sampler of its kind, introducing young readers to five favorite series through the first book in each. Kids will be clamoring to read more—and will have five different series to pursue—after they’ve read the “favorite firsts” in this collection.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

Mary Pope Osborne is the author of the New York Times #1 bestselling Magic Tree House series, as well as co-author of the Magic Tree House Fact Tracker series, along with her husband, Will, and her sister, Natalie Pope Boyce. For more information, visit the Magic Tree House® website at MagicTreeHouse.com. 

Barbara Park was best known as the creator and author of the New York Times–bestselling Junie B. Jones series, the stories of an outrageously funny kindergartener that have kept kids laughing—and reading—for over two decades. The series was consistently a #1 New York Times bestseller, spending over 180 weeks on the list. She wrote more than 50 books for young readers and has won more than 40 children’s book awards.

Ron Roy is the author of dozens of books, including the popular A to Z Mysteries, Calendar Mysteries, and Capital Mysteries series. When not working on a new book, Ron likes to teach tricks to his dog, play poker with friends, travel, and read thrilling mystery books. Visit Ron at RonRoy.com.

Born in Portland, Maine, in 1928, Marjorie Weinman Sharmat dreamed of becoming a writer and she would eventually be the author of more than 130 books for children of all ages. Another of her childhood dreams, that of becoming a detective, has also been realized in her popular Nate the Great series. Nate the Great Saves the King of Sweden has been named one of the New York Public Library’s 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing.

J. C. Greenburg is the author of many books for young people in the library and reference fields. She’s a frequent visitor to schools and pays close attention to kids’ feedback. She’s married to Dan Greenburg of the Zack Files and Weird Planet series, and lives in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.
