Fortunately the Milk by Neil Gaiman

For a 7 year old girl who does have some tracking issues we are working on in VT.

At least few illustrations would be ideal

My 7yo enjoys the 'hybrid' books right now - the ones that have pen and ink illustrations and what often looks to be handwriting.  The 26 Story Treehouse series was a favorite.  Right now he's reading through all the Magic School Bus books he can get his hands on.

 

Also well loved:

The Winnie The Pooh books

Wizard of Oz (the older books have larger type)

Mr. Popper's Penguins

Judy Blume's Fudge series

Roald Dahl

The Invention Of Hugo Cabret

The Phantom Tollbooth. It's a fantasy novel that's full of word play about a boy that must save the princesses, Rhyme and Reason, for the kingdom of Wisdom. some illustrations and lots of humor help keep young readers engaged

We have a lot of these too.  I will try some.  We've previously read all of the Winnie the Pooh Books but she might like to re read the on her own. Thanks!!

Has she checked out the Ottoline or Goth Girl books by Chris Riddell? They are smart and funny. My DD 7 loves them (and they are filled with obscure literary references that go over her head, but are really great). Three Tales of My Father's Dragon is another favorite, and there are a few pictures in that one too. There's also Pip Bartlett's Guide to Magical Creatures (DD liked it, but I have no idea if it's any good).

Discworld! Starting with The Wee Free Men.

Does your DD have access to an ereader? My DS (also precocious but in VT) has really benefited from being able to adjust the font size and spacing of the text he's reading.

Yes, and I need to remind her of this feature!

I was thinking about thus thread at the library the other day when I came across the Search for WondLa books by Tony DiTerlizzi. I remember some full-page illustrations, I don't remember how dense the text was.
