Basically every Roald Dahl book — full of humor and originality, but with life lessons beneath the surface

**When I put a novel under the middle grade or young adult header, the classification is based on three things: the age I read it, the age I feel is appropriate, and how Goodreads categorizes the book. If you do not agree with my classification, I apologize in advance.  


These books are all a part of my list of favorites. I hope you find in these recommendations diverse and enjoyable reads. Let me know in the comments below if you enjoyed some of these books as well!
