I like your blog!

I have a couple suggestions:
Spud, by John Van De Ruit - my son LOVED it, and so did I; both of Van De Ruit's books are hilarious
Underwood, by A. M. Henry - has a boy and a girl protagonist, so would appeal to both genders. My son has actually read that one twice since we bought it last month...
The Secret Diaries of Adrian Mole, by Sue Townsend - these are a bit older and less known in the US, but I still find myself practically doubled over laughing when I re-read them.

Try these fun boy books:
The Underwear Dare by Lisa Nardini
Greg Hart: The Dragon Slayer? by Bill Allen. I think he actually has three books in this series.

For the lower end of that age range I'd suggest Catnapped; it features a cat named Traxter, who is turned into a 10-year-old boy and it's newly published in ebook format. Funny and fast paced!

Adventure series for ages 7-12.
Knight Dreams is the first book in The Adventures of Thomas Bevens series. A heartwarming story of a young boy and his special relationship with his grandfather. Thomas Bevens, a boy with an extraordinary imagination, breaks the boundaries of earthly limitations in this medieval adventure. Join Thomas as he brings in friends and family, both past and present, on this journey to save the Kingdom of Morab.Knight Dreams (The Adventures of Thomas Bevens) by a somewhat aged squire, Michael, Thomas confronts Drabor, a fire-breathing dragon, on his quest to rescue Princess Samantha.
Thomas's ability to recall his adventures, captivates the minds of his family and friends, and leaves them longing to hear where Thomas's imagination will take them next.
Great for reading aloud with the family. Appropriate for all ages.

Have you checked out Just A Vapor in Kindle's ebook store? It is a great historical fiction that boys (and girls)would enjoy. It's a good read for .99 cents.
