Reading recs

A friend is looking for books for his five-year-old granddaughter, who is reading at a fourth to fifth grade level.

The challenge being, of course, to find books that won’t bore her, but that also aren’t about the struggles of teenagers or almost-teenagers, which she’s not quite in a position to relate to yet.

I made some suggestions (Frances Hodgson Burnett, Edward Eager, Bruce Coville), but I figured for fun I’d throw this open here, too.

So, any recommendations?
