Young People's Literature in Series: Fiction. An Annotated Bibliographical Guide.
Rosenberg, Judith K.; Rosenberg, Kenyon C.
This annotated bibliography is designed to aid in the selection of fiction for young people. Nearly 1500 titles from both out of print and in print series that have been printed since 1955 are listed. Series titles aimed at the kindergarten through second grade reader have been omitted with the exception of some series with a grade two reading level whose subjects might appeal to older reluctant readers. The overall level of the series included is for grades three through nine. Several adult titles that might be enjoyed by young people have also been included. Books have been evaluated in terms of plot content, depth and believability of characterization, writing style, and book format. Series are arranged alphabetically by author, and individual titles within each series are arranged by chronological order to enable readers to follow the series in correct sequence. (TO)
