Multcolib My Librarian Rachael: High-spirited, funny Books
Annotation:Young Tiffany is the only person in the world brave enough to stand up to evil. Luckily she has a crew of irascible six-inch-high blue men to help her out.
Annotation:A silly comedy of errors on a Thames crowded with amateur boaters. Mishaps and hilarity abound. Also available in full online at http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/308
Annotation:A would-be academic finds himself in a world where nothing is important except stolen bicycles. If the phrase "fake footnotes" makes you clap your hands with glee, this book is for you.
Annotation:Both a wonderful fairy tale and a high-wire act of metafiction. (No Virginia, there is no S. Morgenstern.)
Annotation:Two short, fantastic fairy tales from a modern master, one about a knight that does not exist, one about a viscount who is cut in two.
Annotation:Two greats, Gaiman and Pratchett, came together to write this tale of a demon and an angel who decide that their bosses' planned apocalypse does not suit them. Library Journal called it "an untrammeled romp through the latter days."

Boisterous, rollicking, and exuberant. These books can't be called bittersweet or subtle, they are belly-laugh books with original, unusual stories.
