"I want book recommendations for 6-year old boys"

I want to get books for my nephews. They are in first grade and have begun to start reading. I've got the drill down for girls -- Junie B Jones, American Girl, the Fairy series, etc. but I'm not sure what little boys read. Any suggestions?

Re: I want book recs for my 6-year old nephews who are just beginning to read

Okay, after much research poring through recommendations from librarians and listmania scanning, here are the books I got for my nephews. I think each book is part of a book series so if any of the books are a hit with the kids, their parents can get more of them.

Little Bear by Elsa Holmelund Minarik.
I loved this book as a kid myself.

Pirate School by Cathy East Dubowski
They love pirates. No brainer.

Frog and Toad All Year (I Can Read Book 2) by Arnold Lobel
I never read the books myself but this old-school book series seems quite genteel.

The Adventures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey
I remember how the boys in my daughter's class loved this series. Not sure if parents did. Oh well.

Nate The Great by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat
Can't skip this book since one of my nephew is named Nate!

Henry And Mudge - The First Book by Cynthia Rylant
A boy and his best friend. A classic book series for early readers.

Bathtime for Biscuit by Alyssa Satin Capucilli
Biscuit and baths can only mean mischief.

Arthur and the Big Snow by Marc Brown
Count me a big fan of the Arthur book and TV series.

Hi! Fly Guy (Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book (Awards) - Tedd Arnold
Personally, I've never heard of the Fly Guy. But I figure if it got an award from the Dr. Seuss folks, the book has to be decently good.
