Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Right. So if it's really kiddie it needs to be quirky enough to entertain them without patronising them?

Garth Nix's "Keys to the Kingdom" series is entertaining and aimed at a young teenage reading level - 10+, apparently, which feels right.

The Hobbit, obviously. Sure, it's aimed at the bottom of the age range, but it's still entertaining enough.

T. H. White's "Sword in the Stone" is good, though the later books get darker and more adult.

Harry Potter series.

Heinlein's young adult books. "Space Cadet", "Farmer in the Sky", "Red Planet", etc.
