Six books that make you laugh!
Jennifer Cruisie is about the funniest author out there. And her funniest, by far, was Wild Ride. Written with her sometimes co-author Bob Mayer, Wild Ride is totally different than her other books. Maybe that's why I find it the most memorable. Definitely anything by Jennifer Cruisie is worth the time - I know I'll be laughing out loud.
Speaking of laughing out loud, Meg Cabot's books are also guaranteed to get me going! The Boy Next Door, the first book I ever read by Ms. Cabot, remains my favorite! Written entirely in emails between the characters, I read it in one night and have re-read it twice since then. (Which is a huge thing; I almost never re-read books!)
Another favorite author is Sophie Kinsella. Wedding Night almost caused me to get into an accident - I was laughing so hard as I listened to it in my car.
As for kids' book that make me giggle, it's hard to narrow the choices down to just three!
My favorite read alouds that keep the kids in stitches are Lois Lowry's All About Sam and Roald Dahl's The Witches. I defy you to read either of these books aloud and not have to stop to wipe a tear! The best part is listening to the kids laugh - every class loves both of these books!
Finally my suggestion to nearly every student who asks for a funny book is most often Mudshark by Gary Paulsen. So cleverly written, especially the subplot narrated by the principal at the beginning of each chapter.
I can't wait to add to my TBR pile for the summer when I check out everyone else's books over at bewitched bookworms! Check it out!
