Jamie O'Rourke and the Pooka and Jamie O'Rourke and the Big Potato
by Tomie dePaola are two fun tales about a lazy Irish guy. Both books are rich with vocabulary and depth, and both work well for modeling characterization, author's craft, drawing conclusions, making comparisons across texts, and story elements. The main character is perfect for story writing too.
