Magyk by Angie Sage
This is the first book in a seven book series.  One of the things I love the most about it is the way it plays on the number seven.  There are seven books and the main character is named Septimus Heap, who is the seventh son of a seventh son.  In case you haven’t already guessed, this makes him a very special person.  As the title indicates, the book is Magyk.  Magical creatures abound.  The classic good vs. evil battle ensues.  Plus, there is a serious case of "mistaken" identity.  Readers will be hooked within moments.

This is a great read aloud for upper elementary classes.  After state testing, we are often looking for a way to de-stress with students.  Reading aloud a good book is one of my favorite afternoon strategies.  If princesses, wizards, and common-folk are what your students look for in a book, this is the series for you!
