I think it might be a bit advanced, but I cannot say enough about a series called His Dark Materials. The first in the series is The Golden Compass, and it's just fantastic. Five Children and It is a lot of fun, too, and for a non-fantasty but wonderful, wonderful story, consider A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. That may be a read-aloud-by-parent book, but that's a great habit to get into.

For the older crowd (adults, teens): The Princess Bride. No kidding. It's so great I just can't stand it.
