Guardians of Ga'Hoole by Kathryn Lasky
The Guardians of Ga'Hoole is a great series, as is Silverwing, Sunwing, and Firewing by Kenneth Oppel (features bats as the main characters). Also Eragon by Christopher Paolini - the second book (Eldest) is due out in August. Derivative, but entertaining.
The Alex Ryder series by Anthony Horowitz (think teenage James Bond
without the girls, but all the gadgets)
The Philip Pullman books are wonderful, but sophisticated.
Lemony Snicket, Narnia, and Harry Potter have all been mentioned already. The My Name is America series has also been mentioned and is quite good.
Dragon Rider by Corneilia Funke (and her other two books as well)
Dragon and Thief (followed by Dragon and Soldier, and Dragon and Slave) by Timothy Zahn - solid SciFi
Faerie Wars (and the sequel The Purple Emperor) by Harve Brennan
Artemis Fowl series by Eoin Colfer - fabulous!
