Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
He’s conquered birthday parties, he’s spent the night in the wild, but when Alvin Ho volunteers to go with GungGung to his best friend’s funeral (gulp), he has to come to deal with the idea that someone he loves just might die one day. Touching on a more serious subject, everyone’s favorite neurotic second grader is back in his fourth book and is just as entertaining as ever. Filled with the same humor and laugh-out-loud antics fans have come to expect from the series, this book has tons of boy appeal and is great for reluctant and beginner readers alike.
