From Chicagoland, a mother recommends, the Fudge series by Judy Blume. She says, "My 4th grader LOVED them. He is dyslexic but, like most dyslexics, loves good narrative. And Judy Blume…not just for girls. Peter Hatcher – in the Fudge books – is a 5th grade boy. Themes are sophisticated, real, funny. My son laughed his head off."
