books for boys

I'm slowly building up a library of amazing books for my three sons. What books do I need to make sure to include? Are there boy equivalents to Anne Shirley, Sara Crewe, Meg Murry, Matilada, et al?

I've been amassing a collection of Children's/YA books for my future kids since I was practically a kid myself but while there's no shortage of plucky heroines and brave/intelligent/compassionate young women, I fear the boys are a bit underrepresented. Now that I'm starting to read chapter books with my oldest kid (4 years old), I'd like to make sure we have a library full of books he and his younger brothers can really get into if and when they're ready. Which book characters make for amazing role models and/or really resonate with boys? All age ranges/reading levels are good.
