The Phamtom Tollbooth
Very good. This really is a very funny book and the library has a great audiobook version. (see my review of the audioboook here) Now let's hear from Super Simran:
Junie B., First Grader: Toothless Wonder By: Barbara Park
Junie B's front tooth is lose and Junie B is not exited. She thinks she won't look good after she loses it. She also wants to know who the tooth fairy is. What does the tooth fariy do with all of those teeth? I really liked this book because it relates to me in a way. Except I am always excited about wiggly teeth.
And from Soccer Shawn:

But so many things atand in his way! His arch-rival, Gurne, is on the loose, he's eaten by a space slug, and worst of all, his boss has assigned him a sidekick! What could be worse?!? But this whole Star Crusher idea goes much deeper than it appears. This book goes into a lot of detail, has excellent battle scenes, and reveals Missle Mouses' past. This is the best comic book I've ever read by far; better than Bone even! Check it out today!
