Ruby Lu and Alvin Ho
If you want your students to read humorous books that are also smartly written, look no further than Lenore Look's Ruby Lu and Alvin Ho books. My daughter and I really enjoyed reading these books and laughed out loud several times, but there is also great humanity shown by the children and adults in these books. Lenore Look is the rare author who truly captures how elementary kids act and feel. The chicken pox scene in the first Alvin Ho book is a great example of this.
