    While The Princess Bride is indeed a good book (and movie), I would recommend that a parent read it before handing it over to a child. The book includes a "meta-story" that is not in the movie, that discusses some unpleasant frank opinions about the author's kid. I'm sure it would either blow by or be funny to many kids and teens, but I wouldn't want to hand it to a sensitive 9-year-old without knowing what's in it.

    True smile I posted here before actually starting the book, and I did notice that...

    Another suggestion is the Dear America series. I own the Titanic one, but there are many others...

    Oh, and the original Hundred and One Dalmatians? I haven't read it yet, but it seems like it's right for this age level.

    One more for now: the Warriors books. They can be violent or sad, but they're really quite good.

    I just remembered The Two Thousand Pound Goldfish. I think it was sad, but funny, but that was a few years ago--I'm not sure how it would hold up.
