Here are some recommendations from some guys we trust.
Three words: "The Wild Rumpus!" It doesn't get much better than that!
This book has everything — adventure, bugs . . . and a giant peach!
When I was a kid, I wished that I had a mouse who could ride a motorcycle. And now that I'm a grown-up, I still do!
I’m a huge chocolate fan, but this book sure made me think twice about what I wished for!
A cute bunny that sucks vegetables dry? Yikes! These books kept me at the edge of my seat.
Start with a Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and read all the way through the books until you get to Double Fudge. These books are hysterical and relatable!
is, most famously, the author of A Series of Unfortunate Events. He also plays a mean accordian.
This book contains fierce battles, a magic wand, illegal gambling, a sea serpent, many ghosts and a werewolf, although the werewolf in the book doesn't really appear in the book. This has been my favorite book since I was a tiny brat, and now that I am larger I try to make everyone read it.
This is another lifelong favorite of mine, about a poltergeist, which is either an invisible ghost throwing things around or somebody pretending to be an invisible ghost throwing things around.
Everybody knows Roald Dahl, but you might not know this book, which is not only a great suspense story but teaches you several methods of hunting pheasant illegally, which your parents have probably not taught you. Another thing you might not know about Roald Dahl is that if you go online you can take a virtual tour of the disgusting hut in which he wrote his books.
This starts out as a pleasant summer story about spending time with one’s cousins and then suddenly gets pretty scary.
This book is even scarier. It might be too scary for you. It is about some nasty, nasty children. I don't really like to think about this book, which is probably why I've read it three times.
OK, this book isn't nearly as scary. It's just about a young girl who gets murdered while bobbing for apples. Agatha Christie is fun to read because there's always a mystery, and often there's a list of characters in the front in case you start getting confused.
A timeless story of outcasts versus the privileged. Exciting and heartbreaking — Hinton should be applauded for understanding the mind of a guy so well.
Lex Luthor finally finds a way to kill Superman and the Big Blue Boy Scout prepares for his death with a shocking ending no one could have seen.
A ship full of children from an all boys' school crashes on the beach of a deserted island. Unfortunately, it isn't long before the kids stop working together and break up into tribes with dark and deadly results.
Most people have seen the movie but few have read the book and that’s a shame. Pinocchio is a walking nightmare and hilarious.
An adaptation of the Jungle Book but instead of a boy being raised by wolves, he's reared by ghosts in an abandoned cemetery. It's chilling and dark, yet a powerful lesson on how a boy becomes a man.
I loved no writer more than Kurt Vonnegut as a teen. His short stories might be an easy entry for the uninitiated.
Exciting, funny, and occasionally gross. What more could you want?
Intense stuff — reality TV taken to the extreme — but I couldn't put it down.
Funny, touching, and fascinating — plus it has excellent cartoons.
Love the drawings, love the characters, love the stories.
Straight-out wacky, hilarious stuff.
