Best Books for Kids

Fantasy. Horror. Science Fiction.


Jaimie Engle is an award-winning author of fantasy, horror, and science fiction books from the Space Coast of Florida. Her passion is talking to kids about writing and social issues because words have power. Her first novel, an anti-bullying fantasy adventure, was written after her own son was bullied in school. She took him to archery club, where she imagined a stalking dwarf seeking a magic arrow. Clifton Chase and the Arrow of Light was born. Since then, Jaimie has published several award-winning books and spoken to tens of thousands of kids across the country about their part in bullying.

“Jaimie thoroughly engaged my gifted students who begged us to “just read one more chapter together.” –Susan Reiter, gifted resource teacher, Quest Elementary School

  4. Hi, Jaimie! It was great meeting you at the NESCBWI conference (I was your volunteer asst.)! I wanted to give you a bit of feedback on “Clifton Chase & the Arrow of Light.” Let me preface this by saying that my12 year old son is an avid reader and is VERY particular about his chapter books… I gave him your book on Wed. after school when we returned home and he finished it before school this morning (Friday) – every night telling me, “Mom! THIS is a GREAT book!”…”Mom! I love this book! She needs to write a sequel to this book!”… “Tell her to write a sequel… It NEEDS a sequel!!!”… This went on repeatedly for both days. So for the love of all things holy and good… PLEASE write a sequel to this book!!! …I hope this makes your day.🙂

    1. OMG!!! That is the most amazing thing I’ve ever read. Thank you!! Could you please ask him to write that review on Amazon if he hasn’t? And send me a pic with him holding the book so I can post it. That is the coolest!! I am on to the sequel this summer. Working on two books right now, then it’s Clifton time! Thank you for the awesome comment…
