Most popular series for kids right now...

After an unscientific poll of librarians in IFLS-land and on PUBYAC, I came up with a list of the current most-popular series for kids and teens. I was looking for the older-than-picturebook crowd, and I got an amazing array of suggestions. I compared this with a list of materials that have multiple holds in our system (thanks Lori!), and compiled the following list.

Here's the kids' list:

#1: Percy Jackson and the Olympians
by Rick Riordan
18 votes

#2: Diary of a Wimpy Kid
by Jeff Kinney
16 votes

#3: 39 Clues
various authors
15 votes

**#4 Warriors by Erin Hunter, 10 votes
#5 Magic Tree House by Mary Pope Osborne, 10 votes
#6 Geronimo Stilton by Geronimo Stilton, 7 votes
#6 Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park, 7 votes
#6 Star Wars (anything! including graphic novels), 7 votes
#9 Fairies and Rainbow Magic by Daisy Meadows, 6 votes
**#10 Red Pyramid/Cane Chronicles by Rick Riordan, 4 votes
#11 Babymouse by Jennifer Holm, illustrated by Matthew Holm, 4 votes
#11 Beast Quest by Adam Blade, illustrated by Ezra Tucker, 4 votes
#11 Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins, 4 votes
#11 Seekers by Erin Hunter, 4 votes
#15 Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz, 3 votes
#15 Charlie Bone by Jenny Nimmo, 3 votes
#15 Guardians of Ga'hoole by Kathryn Lasky, 3 votes
#15 Magyk (Septimus Heap) by Angie Sage, 3 votes
**#19 Pokeman, various authors, 2 votes

** These series had books with multiple holds on the MORE catalog

There were several other titles that received one or two votes, if you want the complete list, please contact me. I'll try to remember to update this list again in 6 months--it will be interesting to see how it changes!
