I remember loving these when I was in middle school. But I can't remember if they were age appropriate, I vaguely remember some risque content. I have a 11 yr old daughter who loves The Lord of the Rings, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, Eragon and similar. I have searched to see if I can find a suggested age range but to no luck. Can anyone help me out?

Mary Stewart

Fairly early in The Crystal Cave comes the bit about whether he was fathered by a demon. These are books written for adults. On the other hand, a young lady to whom one can contemplate offering a trilogy of 4-500 page books is probably fairly mature.

There's a fourth book in that series, as I recall. These hadn't been published when I was your daughter's age, but I recall thinking of them as teen-oriented. Does she know the basic Arthur story? You could give her The Sword in the Stone first. I definitely remember reading that before seventh grade.

Oh yes, do take Jim's advice. The T. H. White version is just right for her age and is engagingly written, I might even call it genius.

Age appropriate -- as a child I often just didn't see what was right in front of me. There are several places in The Three Musketeers where D'Artagnan is having sex with some woman not his wife, and I missed it entirely.

There's certainly nothing in Mary Stewart that's any more explicit than the Three Musketeers.
