"Wayside School stories - funny, very silly, and pretty easy to read."
Miss Nelson Is Missing!
Miss Nelson Is Missing!
"There are three Miss Nelson books, and all are worth a read - the stories are clever, the drawings are funny, and there are not too many words, which helps kids not be scared of the books..."

George and Martha: The Complete Stories of Two Best Friends Collector's Edition (George & Martha Early Reader)

The Knights of the Kitchen Table #1 (Time Warp Trio)
The Knights of the Kitchen Table #1 (Time Warp Trio)

The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales
The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales

The Wolf Who Cried Boy
"We loooove fairy tale parodies! This one is fantastically illustrated!"
The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig
The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig

Animalia (Picture Puffins)

Bad Kitty
Bad Kitty
"A silly, vocabulary-expanding quadruple romp through the alphabet."
Myth-O-Mania: Have a Hot Time, Hades! - Book #1
Myth-O-Mania: Have a Hot Time, Hades! - Book #1
"There are eight Myth-o-Mania books, which present funny and silly retellings of Greek myths. My 10 year old is reading these for fun, while Percy Jackson books are a bit more work."
The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events #1)
The Bad Beginning (A Series of Unfortunate Events #1)
"My kids love the Lemony Snicket books. The premise is dark, but they are clever and don't drag kids down. (The later books get repetitive - most of the jokes are made in the first book or two - but kids still enjoy 'em.) There IS music to go with these - "the Tragic Treasury" is a series of songs based on the books - some are not that great, but some are fun to sing under one's breath..."
Swine Lake
Swine Lake
"More advanced reading level, but a sweet and funny story with wonderful illustrations by Maurice Sendak..."
