Top ten laugh-out-loud reads for 5-8-year-olds

Joanna Nadin is a bestselling British author of middle grade, teen and YA fiction, a speechwriter, and a former Special Advisor to the Prime Minister.

Nadin writes the Penny Dreadful series for younger readers. Her latest YA novel is Paradise.

One of ten top laugh-out-loud reads for 5-8-year-olds the author named at the Guardian:
The Twits by Roald Dahl

Having (not without difficulty) restricted myself to a single Dahl, I've picked the tale of how the marvellous Muggle-Wump monkeys get the better of the vile Mr and Mrs Twit, with the help of Hugtight Sticky Glue. Hairy, hilarious and horrible in equal measure.
