Funny Novels for 6th Graders

We have been doing wonderful read alouds this year, but they have been pretty serious in nature. I would love to end the year with a witty and humorous book that would be appealing to 6th graders. Any suggestions? Planning to start the book in May (we end here on the first week of June). I would appreciate it.

I didn't do it as a read-aloud but my class read "Hoot" by Carl Hiaason earlier this year and LOVED it. Many had seen the movie but the book is different so it was good to compare the two. Funny Book!!

How about No Talking, by Clements - students decide to only talk three words at a time in school. Very funny in parts.

Yes! A year down yonder is great.
But my class LOVED The Watson's go to Birmingham 1963. Read the first chapter and you will be hooked. It sneaks in an awful lot of history and some talking points as well. Great Book!

We've read mostly funny read alouds since our novel studies have been on more serious books. The ones the kids like the most so far are: Harris and Me by Gary Paulsen (I edited out the language and the brief mention of "dirty pictures"), Masters of Disaster by Gary Paulsen, A Long Way From Chicago by Richard Peck, and a few others that I can't think of right now for some reason. Anything by Paulsen or Peck is sure to get a laugh out of your kids, though.

NO MORE DEAD DOGS by Gordon Korman--it's hilarious and it's told from multiple points of view.
