- A Series Of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. Although the events of the series should not be humorous (but are very unfortunate), Snicket's writing style makes the humor shine through.
I was going to recommend the Myth series, but I could not find the entire series in eBook format. I know maybe one or two are available. But even in paper format they are worth a read.

I did see the movie (A Series of Unfortunate Events) and it was good, but not really funny. So do you think the books are better then the movie?
