while waiting for Wimpy Kid...
A lot of the Diary of a Wimpy kid books seem to be checked out. So while you're waiting for your request to come in, how about one of these:
The Great Hamster Massacre by Katie Davies a mystery story about dead hamsters. Ok, so not as funny, it is about dead hamsters after all, but has lots of pictures to go along with the story.
And finally - middle school, funny, and death all in one book - Milo: sticky notes and brain freeze by Alan Silberberg - "drawings and quick-witted humor that will keep the pages turning"
