irisheyes... One more that DD loved (since your child liked The Familiars as much as mine) was The Outlandish Adventures of Liberty Aimes. I read it with her 2 years ago and it was SOOOO CUTE! It's about a girl who has wacky parents and her Dad has crazy potions and she takes one that makes her fly. She floated away to attend a boarding school she wanted to go to. It was really cute. I could see it being a kids movie someday! I enjoyed reading it with her!
