  • Any of The Hardy boys Books are good for that age. Also, My Teacher is an Alien or My Teacher Flunked the Planet by Bruce Coville.
    If you are lucky enough to have a Five Below Stor near you, they have wprkbooks for the grade that your child is going into and have a list of reccommened books in them. I think Sam's Club also carries a workbook series too!.

  • I was going to say the Percy Jackson books too. Harry Potter, Hardy Boys, The Alchemyst by Michael Scott (it's the first in a series).

  • My almost 12 year old son loves the "Peter and the Starcatchers" series by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. It's a Peter Pan adventure series, but set more realistically according to my son who's read them at least twice through now.

  • I know they're old-fashioned, but has he read any of the "Encyclopedia Brown" books? I loved those as a kid, and they're appropriate for boys or girls.
