Super-beloved classics for 8-to-12 year olds (or thereabouts)! Books I read at this age have stuck with me more than any others from any time (I mean, Charlotte's Web, and The Phantom Tollbooth, come on!). Here I included some that have been around for generations, as well as some of the most popular recent series that are bound to be read by many future generations.

This would be a perfect end-of-holidays/back-to-school gift: a reward for a completed summer reading list, or inspiration for next year's conquests.

Framing & Sizing Info

We partner with our friends at Simply Framed to offer custom framing in your choice of frame, plus an appropriately-sized white mat and UV-shielding plexiglass. (You can see more details in our FAQ.)

Please note, if you order a framed 8 x 10" print or painting, it will arrive in a frame that is about 11.75 x 13.75". An 11 x 14" print or painting will be in a 16.75 x 19.75" frame, and a 16 x 20" in a 22.75 x 26.75" frame.

As all the frames are custom fit to the prints, framing your work adds 2-3 weeks to your delivery time, but it is SO worth it, we promise.
