A book by James Thurber, somewhat autobiographical. Hilarious, dry wit. I read this in fifth grade, so it's readable by someone younger and not tough going, but I reread it regularly and it's still great. Was part of the basis of the short-lived television series with William Windom and Lisa Gerritsen, My World -- and Welcome to It. The pilot included bits from "The Night the Bed Fell," one of the greatest essays ever. Also read his fables and children's books.
