My 6 year old son has read all the 16 Tashi books, soduku and the thousand paper cranes, roald dahl the magic finger.
I was planning to borrow captain underpants but not sure if it will make my son naughty.

I need ideas of what kind of chapter books to get.He likes the above kind of books. So something similar will be good.

Dd really loved How to Train Your Dragon. The books are much better than the films or TV series.
She also liked the Percy Jackson books.

Mr Gum, Horrid Henry, Wimpy Kid and the Captain Underpants series have all been enjoyed by my DC at around that age.
My 8yo loves books by Pamela Butchart as well.

DS is currently reading the Skullduggery Pleasant series. I have no idea what they are about but he loves them. Diary of a Wimpy Kid is also popular as well as a huge collection of Tom Palmer books.
