Age appropriate books for low readers

Does anyone have any suggestions for grade 4 or 5 students reading at a grade 1 or 2 level? Need a novel style book that looks appropriate. Want something that will not make children embarrassed. My goal is to have kids (especially boys enjoy reading rather than reading because they are told to). HELP!!!

I don't think you will be able to find anything that low that can be disquised as an upper level book. First and second grade level is really low and basic. You would be suprised that most kids don't even pay attention to what others are reading and they will like them in spite of not being able to read. Most kids are don't care about the academic levels of their friends.

My low-reader 4th grade boys love these--they're funny, silly & even good readers enjoy them:

The Melonhead Series
Underwhere Series
My Weird School Series

For a little bit higher level (2nd-3rd) try

Beast Quest
Diary of a Wimpy Kid (this is a bit high, but many of the kids do okay with this due to strong motivation)
Captain Underpants (and his many adventures)

Good luck!

My first grade boys love Ready Freddy. It is kind of like the boy version of Junie B. Jones. My boys who read a DRA 16 are doing just fine with this chapter book series.
