Who wrote the Disney Fairies books? Which series appeal to boys? In what genre would you classify A Series of Unfortunate Events? These are just some of the questions that challenge K–6 librarians as the popularity of series fiction continues to grow. Series are not always easy to manage.

This updated and expanded edition gives librarians and their patrons a handy guide to the best and most popular series, making it easier to satisfy young readers' desire to read all the books in a given series and then to find similar series to enjoy.

For each of the 1,200 series included, the authors provide an annotation that describes the series' appeal and key characteristics. Also included are the publisher, grade level, genre, and a numbered list of the titles in the series with publication dates. This reading guide and selection tool is an invaluable resource for anyone working with preschool and elementary school children.
