Boys will be Boys ( and so will girls)

summer fun in the mud
I got a message on my Face Book page asking for some suggestions for a 9 year old reader who has loved Captain Underpants, Bone, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Big Nate.  As this describes most of the 9 year old boys I know, I thought I would respond here.  I am going to make a list with Title and Author.  All of these books find boys up to some kind of adventure or trick.  Some are fantastical, but most are just examining the ordinary antics that young boys, and sometimes girls, get up to.  Many of the characters are brought to life in multiple books, so look for the other titles staring your readers favorite boy.


  • Alvin Ho by Lenore Look
  • Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown
  • Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key by Jack Gantos
  • The Vacation by Polly Horvath
  • Homer Price by Robert McCloskey
  • The Name of this Book is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch
  • Stink by Megan McDonald
  • Bad Kitty Gets a Bath by Nick Bruel
Give these a try and let me know what your reader thinks!
