Ten adventure books that belong in every kid’s library

At the BN Kids Blog Connie Diaz de Teran tagged ten adventure books that should be in every kid’s library, including:
Darwen Arkwright and The Peregrine Pact, by A.J. Hartley

Darwen, a boy from England, is sent to live with his aunt in Atlanta, Georgia. Discovering a furry bat with a human-like head flying in the mall, he is led to Octavious Peregrine’s peculiar shop of mirrors. Mr. Peregrine, an eccentric little man, gives Darwen a tarnished old mirror. When Darwen no longer sees his reflection but a forest leading up to a fountain, he decides to go through the mirror, only to discover a world full of more bizarre creatures!
