Hi my dd1 is a fluent reader and is currently trying to read 'Utterly Me' by Clarice Bean.

The trouble is, my dd1 has Aspergers, her reading is great but her understandings not level with her reading skills.

Can anyone recommend any books which are easy to follow/understand?

Oops, ment 'utterly me, clarice bean, by Lauren Child.

My Naughty Little Sister has been a great favourite with all of mine - either Book People or Red House has the set on offer at the moment too.
The Mr Gum books are good, but very silly - so it depends on whether she could cope with the sheer level of nonsense involved which can be a problem for those children who interpret things literally.
The Daisy books by Nick Sharrat are good and also Junie B Jones, a kind of modern American Naughty Little Sister.

She would like 'silly' as she takes things literally grin, i will have a look at Mr gum, thank you.

If she likes silly, there are also the Seriously Silly stories and something called Too Ghoul for School (also on offer at Book People atm I think) which my very silly DD and her very silly boyfriend like. (They are 7 but the books would be fine for a 5 year old good reader I think.)

"Daisy and the trouble with...." books by Kes Gray. My DD laughed her way through these!
