The Boxcar children series, Encyclopedia Brown, and Harry Potter. Also, stuff by Jerry Spinelli (Wayside School, Maniac Magee), Matt Christopher (books about football, baseball, and other sports), Andrew Clements (The Landry News, The Janitor's Boy, etc.), and Rick Riordian. Among others...
I am the eldest of six siblings, the youngest of whom is in third grade. Thus, I come home to stacks of 4th/5th/6th grade literature. These are some of my personal favorites.
Here are ten to get you started...
1. The Giver by Lois Lowry
2. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
3. Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
4. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
5. The City of Ember by Jeanne Duprau
6. Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
7. There's A Boy in the Girl's Bathroom by Lois Sacher
8. Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
9. Everest by Gordan Korman
10. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
Hating Alison Ashley is a complete classic, and has a great message about liking people that are different to you. Everything by Roald Dahl (except his works for mature audiences, of course : ) ), Paul Jennings, the Harry Potter series to name a few of my favourites.

Can you recommend a good book series - not Twighlight or Harry Potter - something new?
