If you like Terry Pratchett, you'll love... ? (You are 10.)

My daughter loves Terry Pratchett. Fortunately, he has like 35 books or something. But unfortunately she's already read most of them. He's great for her because:
3. Books are long (she reads his grown up books) so she doesn't finish them in one day
4. They are almost all totally kid appropriate, even though most are ostensibly written for adults.
She also loves the Oz books, and I think one thing she really responds to about both of these is that they are wacky adventures that somehow lack a real feeling of peril. She doesn't like scary.
(Yes, we are very intimately acquainted with several local children's librarians, and often ask their advice, but I'm opening it up to metafilter for more ideas, especially for books supposedly for adults but that can work for kids)
