The Clementine series
I don't remember if I've previously mentioned my deep and abiding love for the Clementine series by Sara Pennypacker.
The humorous books are at about the same reading level as Junie B. and Judy Moody, but they are wa-a-a-ay better. Just think: funny with character development and a protagonist you can care about. (No offense to Junie B.) Clementine is very creative and has a good heart, EVEN if she calls her baby brother by a variety of vegetable names (broccoli, okra, squash, etc.)instead of his real name.
The newest book in the series is Clementine: Friend of the Week.
To state the obvious, it was excellent!!!
