He's read both The Runaway Princess and The Runaway Dragon by Kate Coombs three or four times since we got them from the library a couple weeks ago. He's also put them on his birthday list, and told me I need to read them!
I read Dragons at Crumbling Castle and Other Tales by Terry Pratchett first, and approved it for Sam, and I think he's read it twice now. I thought it was very funny, and if I get a chance before we take it back to the library, I'll do a proper review of it.

Bubble Trouble by Margaret Mahy, illustrated by Polly Dunbar, is a funny fable about a baby who gets stuck inside a bubble blown by his older sibling, and the town's frantic efforts to rescue him. It's also kind of a tongue-twister. My husband has a fondness for tongue-twisters, and he loves reading this, so I leave it to him.
Peanut Butter & Cupcake! by Terry Border is about a piece of peanut-butter-covered bread looking for friends. The illustrations are actually quirky photographs.
Library Mouse by Daniel Kirk is the first book in one of my kids' favorite series. Sam and Sarah took their nicknames from these books, which feature a shy mouse named Sam who lives in a library and loves to write and illustrate his own books.
