There are heaps of web sites around that give you lists of books to explore. Here is one I found today called The Reading Tub. You can select an age group and then explore titles. There is also a link to their blog which makes interesting reading.
The site does not seem to have an author search which is a pity and I found all the titles that started with "the" were in 'T'.
Another place to look for books is Spaghetti Book Club. Here is another one to look at - it is good to see the book covers. Perhaps you can recommend some books for our school library.
Finally here is one from New Zealand - you just click on a heading that interests you. I was happy to see Momo on this list of European titles too good to miss....
