20. The Adventures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey

It all started when two fourth grade boys created a comic book character, Captain Underpants, and then hypnotized their principal to believe he was the Captain! Nothing is funnier than an adult running around in underpants.

7. Sweet Valley High by Francine Pascal

This series was like our introduction to the first scandalous/romance novel. I mean it wasn't fifty shades of anything, but it was full of drama!

4. The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner

Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny took us along on adventures and mysteries. With over 100 books in the series we couldn't get enough.

3. Sideways Stories From Wayside School by Louis Sachar

How crazy would it have been to go to school in a tower 30 stories high? It was so clever that each book had 30 chapters called "storeys."

1. The Magic Tree House Series by Mary Pope Osborne

Who didn't love tagging along with brother and sister, Jack and Annie, as their magical tree house full of books took them on wild adventures?
