I really like The Mysteries of Harris Burdick by Chris Van Allsburg.
Tuesday by David Weisner is also amazing. Both of these are picture books.
As for a DWJ, I had The Ogre Downstairs read to me by my older sister
at about 7 and I loved it. I also remember loving The Egypt Game by
Zilpha Keatley Snyder. But maybe I was a bit older for that one.
