    Magic Treehouse books are popular at our house.
    Love Where the Red Fern Grows.
    If he is into dogs, my daughters love the Shiloh series.

    Re: Book Ideas for a Young Boy

    I love so many of the books mentioned in this thread!

    Any Roald Dahl books, The Lemondade Trick by Scott Corbett (I'm reading that to my kids), the My Father's Dragon series by Ruth Stiles Gannett, and the Mrs. Piggle Wiggle series by Betty MacDonald are all good ones too.

    Re: Book Ideas for a Young Boy

    I am reading some Edgar Eager books with my son. In fact, he just asked if I would come up and read. We're reading Magic By the Lake right now.

    Re: Book Ideas for a Young Boy

    Wow! Thanks for all the great ideas, folks, I really appreciate it.

    And I had totally forgotten Treasure Island. I think that'll be a great "end-of-the-school-year" present. His family lives on a rather large piece of land, and he has his "fort" in the woods where he goes to read and eat peanut butter crackers...I'm sort of jealous!

    Re: Book Ideas for a Young Boy

    I love the Eager books! I only wish the covers looked a little more different so when we go to the bookstore it is easier to recall which ones we have and which ones we don't!
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    Re: Book Ideas for a Young Boy

    It's not a classic per say, but my 9 year old and I just read the Kingdom Keepers. If he's a Disney fan at all, he'll love it

    At this age my oldest LOVED Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and the rest of the Fudge books also.

    YES! My students would BEG me to read all of the Fudge books to them. (Author: Judy Blume) And then they would want to read them all over again by themselves.

    The Westing Game By Ellen Raskin is a fantastic mystery I read at that age.

    Re: Book Ideas for a Young Boy

    My nine year old loves the Charlie Bone series by Jenny Nimmo. http://www.scholastic.com/charliebone/cb_castle.htm

    Also, Hardy Boys, Chronicles of Narnia, Series of Unfortunate Events, and The Spiderwick Chronicles.

    All my kids have loved Roald Dahl books, especially The BFG.

    I know they also came out with updated versions of the Hardy Boys. Same stories, but some of the stuff has been updated (computers, etc).

    Re: Book Ideas for a Young Boy

    I know it's not a classic series but I'm 18 and absolutely love the
    Series of Unfortunate Events.

    I think they are very good, very silly but good.
