The Time Warp Trio series, (there are at least seven volumes), has turned out to be a wonderful find.
The three boy heroes are resourceful, brave, and loyal to each other. The kidding around is funny and not mean. The overall tone of the books is cheerful.
The plots are sort of silly and a little forced, (a magic book transports them to a different adventure in each volume), but within a reasonable kids version of fantasy.
The books are not driven by farts and boogers or other cheap "reluctant reader" conventions. Rather, there is an actual adventure, usually with a problem (how to beat the giant, or how to get back home), that has to be solved.
Parents don't play a large role, but they also aren't portrayed as idiots or grumps.
Short paragraphs and chapters move the action along at a good pace.
This has turned out to be a good attention-holding read-with, and is a manageable read-alone. And as I look over my kid library, the series really does seem to be the only one filling the gap at that awkward early reader level.
They are funny, interesting, short chapter books that just make reading fun - and they're written by a guy specifically for guys. I'm not sexist and I'm sure girls would like these books too - just as guys would like the various series available that have girls as the protagonists - but when you're a mother of two sons you understand that sometimes boys need boy's things. These books are one of those things.
