It seems a new children's novel has been appointed to rule the holy throne previously occupied by Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - that of the number one spot on the children's bestselling fiction book list. Falling after a sixteen-week overdrive, the late Harry Potter tome has given wayopens in new window to Jacqueline Wilson's Midnight.

After a 16-week run since publication in June, JK Rowling's Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Bloomsbury) has been knocked off the top of the children's fiction bestseller list. The usurper is Jacqueline Wilson's Midnight (Doubleday), which sold 6,674 copies to HP5's 5,982.
