For this list we’ve included children’s books like Pinocchio, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Inkheart, Ella Enchanted, Eragon, The Cat in the Hat and more!

  1. My older sister loves Ella Enchanted. But it didn’t make much sense to me. And I didn’t care much for Eragon, but I loved its theme song.

  2. Percy Jackson shouldn’t be an honorable mention, and I wish you didn’t actually count Cat in the Hat, while it is a book, it’s not necessarily a novel like the rest of the books on the list were (correct me if I’m wrong). While it may not have been done right I will admit, I actually like that people tried expanding their imaginations of the Dr. Seuss books into a feature length film.
