He loves to read but when I look in the store nothing fits.

I like Treasure Island but is that too old?

Thank you!

Series of unfortunate events, Chet gecko (a series), spider wick series. Those were some my son loved a few years ago at 10. If he's a strong reader maybe Artemis fowl.

What does he like? My 6 year old nephew loves fantasy. He reads Harry Potter, the How to train your dragon series, and some classics that I don't remember.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians series would be a fun one.

Harry Potter is always a favorite of kids and adults.

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

Ummm....I'll try to think of some others as I make dinner.

Series of unfortunate events

Holes

both great suggestions and both my boys loved.

How about a subscription to a cool periodical like Nat Geo for kids or Zoo Animals? My boys loved these and it was a big deal to have something come in the mail, in their name, every month.

Holes Louis Sachar

But Anything by Rick Riordan - he'll love them all I expect: The Lightning Thief
etc.

This is what the boys I work with say is their favorite series!

eta - The six graders did not appreciate reading treasure island (unabridged) last year.

Escape from Warsaw they all like too!

Oragami Yoda series is big in our house.

Doctor Who novels are another one he loves.

DSS is almost 9, but reads at a much higher level.

What's his reading level? Does he like action? Adventure? Mystery? I'm a school librarian. PM me with those answers and I'll send you a list and some links.
Also, print, or ebook?

Holes is still both my kids' favorite book from their childhood.

DS also still goes back to the Lion, Witch and Wardrobe series when he has nothing to read, lol.

(PPGA, everything you mentioned I was sitting here shaking my head Yes! Yes!)

scaredyKat, you have my dream job .

"The Hatchet" by Gary Paulsen, really any of the books by Gary Paulsen. He has several good adventure type books. Good, clean, fun, honest books good for boys who love adventure and imagination. Call of the Wild by Jack London. Chronicles of Narnia series. The Indian in the Cupboard. Smokey the Cowhorse is an old book but a wonderful story of determination and loyalty. Iron Will is excellent. Its a true story of a boy who lost his father in his youth and saved the family farm by winning a dog sledding race - set during WWII. Stuart Little, City of Embers. (Can you tell I have a son? :-) He's 17 and gobbled up every book I could get my hands on when he was growing up-haha)

Anything by Rick Riordan

This. Ds 9 eats them up and we're waiting on a book order for two more right now. He also read quite a few of the Harry Potter books early on. I think he finished the third the summer after grade one. We took a hiatus because although his reading level is very advanced, he's still a sensitive little boy. So finding a balance of what he could read vs. what he was ready to read was tough. At 9 though he's ready to read them again.
He really likes the Ridley Pearson books. They are mysteries all set in Disney. Neat concept even if you aren't Disney parks fans or familiar with the parks.. it's just the setting.
