Children’s science fiction

Spaceships, robots and more await SFF readers. Middle-grade reads will love James Patterson’s House of Robots series and the Little Badman books, while the Artemis Fowl series is perfect for slightly older readers. Children can head on adventures in a TARDIS with the Doctor Who books, and journey into dystopian fiction with Boy in the Tower by Polly Ho-Yen, Jules Verne’s Journey to the Centre of the Earth and Alex Scarrow’s TimeRiders series.
