Hi there, DD has already worked her way through the Horrid Henry, Mr Gum, How to Drain your Dragon and Wimpy Kid series. She's also read Pippi Longstocking and bits of Geronimo Stilton from the school library.

What next? I'm running out of ideas...Looking for recommendations for funny books really. She seems to find non humourous funny books more hard going and doesn't get through them as fast.

BTW how do you edit a message once it's been posted? Or can't you do this on MN?

Not a chance of editing. How do you drain your dragon? Grin
My DD enjoyed Jeremy Strong at that age, also the worst witch and Mirrorbelle Mirabelle - somthing like that. It's about a fairy or princess, possibly witch who lives in the mirror. I think.

And if you can track them down the old Wombles chapter books by Elizabeth Beresford (not the picture books/tv series linked ones)

Ramona Quimby series
Judy Moody series
Humprey the hamster series.
Alice in Wonderland? One of mine laughed at that at 7.
Moomintroll books appeal to some senses of humour.

Olga da Polga?
Goblino the witches cat?
Worst Witch?

Bottersnikes and Gumbles (out of print and entirely impossible to get hold of at a reasonable price Sad)

Roddy Doyle: Giggler treatment, Meanwhile adventures and Rover saves Christmas. DS1 has read them all at least twice, but he still rolls around laughing at them.
Other books by Astrid Lindgren eg Karlson on the roof
Madame Pamplemousse and the time travelling cafe

The Ottoline books by Chris Riddell (which have amazing illustrations and are also worth reading yourself :) )
