I need a good book to read to my kid

I still read to my kid most nights, even though kid will be 12 next month.

So I need a good book, preferably one that doesn't start off with a parent dying, like Grief Girl (liked it quite a bit, though), Cures for Heartbreak (so-so, despite good reviews, plus fairly clear descriptions of sex caused book to be put aside), and we're now reading something where the dad has just died.

I would prefer something funny, like Storky (we're planning on getting Stuck in the 70s), or kind of dramatic, like Skate. And no detailed explanations of sex - kid is just not ready for that [Full confession: and Mom feels pretty funny reading it aloud.]

Kid has a good vocab and can deal with complex themes. Although maybe that's not what we are looking for.

I'm now open for suggestions.
