    I remember that book. It was a boy and the title was "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No good, very bad day" I think.
    WHAT?

    I loved the series that started with My Teacher is an Alien. But my all-time favorite was a book called Oddkins by Doon Koontz. The artwork was just as memorable as the story.

    Charlotte's Web, The Tub People, and anything Curious George for the win.

    I loved reading and there were many good books I got from the library. I read some Ramona books. I wish I had read Narnia and others. One of my favorite books has no title. It's a brown hardcover book with many short stories. I got it because my school was giving away old books and I picked it because it was near me, LOL.

    I didn't read it for the longest time (maybe a couple years). But then I started reading it and it was such a great book. I learned a lot from it, about spiders, camels, history, Picasso etc. But all the stories are for kids and they had stories about a doll, witches, magic so I didn't realize it was an "educational" book. The pictures are so pretty also.

    Sacrilege! It's been 5 days since this topic was started and no one has mentioned it yet? How could you?! It is only one of the greatest and funniest children's books ever written in the history of all existence, and that's including the cowboy universe and Dimension X!

    The Stinky Cheese Man & Other Fairly Stupid Tales!

    Hee hee, I had it committed to memory, I loved that book so much. I also loved anything by Bruce Coville (although the My Teacher Flunked the Planet was kind of a downer), and the Sideways Stories From Wayside School, The Chronicles of Narnia, and the Goosebumps books (although I lost track of them after about #40...and it's just as well, because not that I look back on them they were pretty stupid and not very scary at all.

    "The Stinky Cheese Man & Other Fairly Stupid Tales" was good.

    "Where the Wild Thiings Are" had awesome illustrations that I absolutely loved to look at back in the day.

    "Love you Forever" I read in my senior year English class for the first time in like 12 years. I almost cried reading it. It's really a touching story (I'm not being sarcastic). And when I realized that I was no longer the little boy, it was kinda sad... Just kinda hit me.

    Uhm... I know I read a lot of the "Goosebumps" books. Those were alright.

    I can't really think of any other books I really loved. I have this box of old books in my room; I'm sure if I looked through it I could find a lot more I loved when I was just a little lad.

    Does anyone else remember the "Lone Wolf" adventure game books. That series was great. It had a choose-your-adventure-type premise except the protagonist had hitpoints and could fight monsters and collect better weapons and stuff.

    The Prydain Chronicles (Book of Three through the High King) were probably my favorites. I loved the Lone Wolf books, and Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing was good.

    I used to love reading EVERYTHING you guys have been naming, but a few more that I can only vaguely remember are

    Tuck Everlasting
    The Clown Arounds
    But No Elephants
    - Some book were a family are driving on a road but the road is all curly and weird...as I said VERY VAGUE! lol
    - A book about a class that misbehaves so their teachers becomes "sick" and a "sub" comes in that is evil and like a witch, I really liked these books but can't remember what they're called!
    The Pen Pals series (girls at some boarding school who had boy penpals from another boarding school I THINK)

    And someone earlier mentioned Christopher Pike. I didn't ready much of his, but I stumbled upon a series called "Remember Me" when I was on vacation once and thought they were the best thing ever.
