What Would You Recommend? - Magic Tree House

This is a question I get asked all the time working in the bookstore: "What would you recommend for somebody who loved "_________"? (fill in the blank)" Usually I can come up with something, but that something can be a bit of a wild guess if it's not a book or genre I normally read. This is where you helpful people come in. If you have a suggestion, I'd love to hear it.

I know it's a couple of weeks late, but things have been hectic in my life. This week, I'm asking a question I've been asked about three times in the last month or so. Everyone seems to think the Magic Treehouse series for younger readers is coming to an end, and I keep getting asked what else their kids will like to read. I have to admit that I really don't know to be honest. I do know that the books have an interesting mix of history and fantasy, but I can't think of any other books that have the same.

So, what would you recommend?

I don't know anything about this series but as far as a mix of history and fantasy I was going to suggest Chronicles of Narnia, but on second thought I think it may be a bit too dated (and stiff) for todays children to enjoy.

Not to mention geared towards older children perhaps. I know Narnia is found in the nine to twelve year old's section of the bookstore.
