My cousin Lucie has a kid who will be nine shortly, and she's wondering about book recommendations.
He so far loves the Inheritance Cycle (Eragon, etc), the Artemis Fowl series and the Alex Rider kid-spy books.
Harry Potter and Series of Unfortunate Events were both too scary for him, so we're looking for things a bit less dark than that.
She describes him as "Intellectual age of 12, emotional age of 5."

- Anyone want to suggest some books for a nine-year-old?
