Since you enjoyed Now We Are Six by A.A. Milne, I am including among the list of funny books, some humorous poetry as well. I hope you find some books that you will enjoy.
Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb by Al Perkins. Rhyming text describes what
can be done on a drum with hand, fingers, and thumb.
Cat Is Back At Bat by John Stadler. Fourteen rhymed verses describe
funny animals, for example, "A big pig tries a wig" and "A snake tries
to bake a cake."
Minnie and Moo and the Musk of Zorro by Denys Cazet. Cows Minnie and
Moo masquerade as the hero Zorro in order to protect the barnyard, but
the results are not quite what they intended. There are several more
books about these funny cows.
Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish. No one is sillier than the maid who
follows every instruction to the letter.
