I heard David Sedaris reading his book - Dress your family in denim and Cordury (I think) - on the radio last week and it made me laugh. I then picked up a free CD with samples of his audio books at Waterstones. Very funny. I'd recommend getting an audio book - there's something about his voice and delivery that cracks me up.

Try GOING GENTLY by David Nobbs (wrote the Reginald Perin series).

Time for Bed by David Baddiel is pretty light, the funniest bit is the slow motion chase scene between two old ladies and the hero and his grandmother - I cry with laughter every time...

'Holes' by Louis Sacher is one of the most enjoyable books I read last year. When you get to the end there is a wonderful feeling of satisfaction as all the loose ends are imaginatively tied up.

You will probably need to look for it in the children's section, although it is really a 'crossover' book, like The Dog in The Nightime.

You wouldn't believe that a novel that begins with a desperate young pregnant woman about to hurl herself from a roof could be heartwarming - but it is....

THE MEMORY PALACE by Christie Dickason proceeds to take you to places and to meet people you'd never imagine, sometimes with a spice of danger, but brings you back again for a surprising and satisfying conclusion.

ENJOY!!!
