    Hi Polly,

    These books should be available in major bookstores like National Bookstore, Power Books, and Fully Booked. You can just call your local branch to inquire.

    Wow, just in time because I was looking for good books for my nephews. Instead of toys which they can outgrown, books are good stuffs for kids like them. and It's best that at their early age of 5 and 7 they have the passion in books already.

    This is a great list! I want to have copies of these for my future children! I wanna read to them before they sleep. :)

    Twilight series should be allowed when they're in college. No less than that! :P
