At work we become "Santa" for children in foster care.  I've picked a 12-year old girl who has asked for comedy books for Christmas.  Can anyone recommend a few good comedy books that are age appropriate?

Thanks,

Tina

Gordon Korman writes some good funny books for that age.  I've also heard good things about The Princess Academy  from some of the fifth graders in my building.  You can never go wrong with Roald Dahl, for that matter.
