Life After Potter -- and More Great Summer Reading

Harry Potter

There oughta be a name for it.

Maybe Post-Potter Depression, or P.P.D.? It's no stretch to think that kids -- and a fair share of adults -- might come down with just such an ailment following the release of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," the seventh and last book in J.K. Rowling's best-selling series.

Don't worry, we're not giving anything away about the latest tale or saying it won't meet J.K. Rowling's high standards -- odds are it will be as amazing as the first six books. But without the further Hogwarts adventures of Harry, Ron, and Hermione, just what books will kids devour to sate their reading appetites -- and keep P.P.D. at bay?

We've put together a list -- not only of the best possible Harry successors but of other kids' books centered around categories we've created based on popular kids' summer movie fare. Check out:

For each subject area, we've suggested activities and recipes to try should your child want to host her friends at a kid-centric book club meeting. Happy reading!
