Kids love to laugh at all kinds of humor. They love parodies, slapstick, character-driven humor and even sophisticated irony and silly puns. Middle grade readers are especially eager to see humor in their books.

Idiosyncratic, clever and fun. These are just some of the defining features of some of the most memorable characters in middle grade fiction. Who can forget the wit of Charlotte the wordsmithing spider in E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web or the wacky exuberance and charm of Astrid Lindgren’s Pippy Longstocking in Pippy Longstocking or the inimical yet ultimately beneficent sass and style of Willie Wonka in Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. None of the plots in these books would work without singular and unpredictable characters that generations of children have come to love.

It’s no mystery why middle grade mysteries are selling. They feature fearless (and sometimes really fearful) protagonists who solve riddles, find missing pets, missing parents or expose environmentally irresponsible companies. The feisty stars of middle grades allow children the opportunity to identify with heroes and heroines who demonstrate courage, pluck and resourcefulness.
