My DS LOVES Diary of a Wimpy Kid. He's a big fan of Roald Dahl and Captain Underpants as well, so he may have the same tastes as your DS. DS also really enjoys Roddy Doyle's children books. They are very funny and very surreal. If he enjoys history, he may also like The Roman Mysteries series of books.

In the last year ds (9) has loved Cressida Cowell's Hiccup Viking books, Alex Rider series, Artemis Fowl series, Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series, Zizou Corder's Lion Boy series, Michelle Paver' Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series, Diamond Brothers series (also by Anthony Horowitz) - that should keep him going for a while
