A Tale Dark & Grimm - Adam Gidwitz
I know most kids today have been fairly desensitized to blood and gore, but I'm still not sure I'd let anyone under 12 years old read this even though it's not overdone (in my opinion). It would be a great book for an older kid, though, and I think my nephew would actually sit down and read through this one fairly quickly. Now that I think about, I've sat down and watched him destroy countless Nazi zombies in a video game, so he might actually find this book a little tame for his tastes...
