Harry Potter. (And if that raises your eyebrows, then read them first and then read Looking for God in Harry Potter by John Granger).

I've read all the Harry Potter books and loved them, but I'm not ready for the kids to read past #3 yet, even though all my nine year old's acquaintances have read the whole series.

We've started Dr. Dolittle, and it's been a hit to this point

My husband introduced me to the Prydain Chronicles! Another one he liked was The Hero and the Crown and the Blue Sword(which is extra impressive since the main character is...gasp! a girl!). Not a long series, but might be up your alley.

The Freddy the Pig series and Boxcar Children series are some of our faves.
