At age seven or eight, you're in that weird in between phase of picture books not being challenging enough, and chapter books being out of your comfort zone.
There are, of course, a few series that tackle that challenge, but more often than not the stories are weak and uninteresting. This became especially noticeable when you had to write a book report and there was nothing good to choose from.
BUT NEVER FEAR! Great Illustrated Classics are here to save the day. These books took age-old stories and turned them into kid-friendly versions.
Because they were made for kids, the stories often tell a lighter tale, but the general plot remains the same. There were many different categories to choose from...which ones did you read?

If animals aren't your thing, maybe you read these instead.
