Funny Books for Kids ➕

  1. THE BOOK WITH NO PICTURES by B.J. Novak
    Impossible NOT to be funny when reading this aloud
  2. CONFESSIONS OF AN IMAGINARY FRIEND by Michelle Cuevas
    Coming out in September, this middle grade novel is full of charming, original ideas and tender humor. Any 8-10 year old will love this one.
  3. TALES OF A FOURTH GRADE NOTHING by Judy Blume
    The classic that never ages. Remember "Eat it or wear it"?
  4. Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney
    Not sure I've ever laughed so much while reading a novel aloud as when I first read Wimpy Kid #1.
  5. A LONG WAY FROM CHICAGO and A YEAR DOWN YONDER by Richard Peck
    Richard Peck's satirical, over-the-top characters have a Mark Twain brilliance to them.
  6. ONCE UPON AN ALPHABET by Oliver Jeffers
    Quirky little stories that take you by surprise.
  7. MEET WILD BOARS by Meg Rosoff
    Irreverent and a bit naughty -- your 4-6 year old will think you are SO cool if you read this one aloud.
  8. MARTHA SPEAKS by Susan Meddaugh
    Gleefully silly -- a long-time favorite picture book of mine.
  9. The Bad Kitty series by Nick Bruel
    Consistently fun and funny chapter books.
  10. TERRIFIC (and everything else) by Jon Agee
    Wry and clever, and just as much fun the fifth time as the first. Jon Agee is a master of deadpan humor.
