Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang was perfect for my 7-yr-old son, and he's also enjoyed Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Five Children and It, and especially Swallows and Amazons. Peter Pan and The Secret Garden are tough reads but geared to his age story-wise. The Last Unicorn is an interesting case of being accessible to his age, but having a lot of deeper meaning that I enjoyed myself. Same would go for The Little Prince.
The youngest-geared are Dr. Seuss (obviously) and Where the Wild Thing Are, which my son has had for years now.
I wouldn't dream of introducing him to "Fellowship" yet (we read The Hobbit instead). I suspect The Colour of Magic and The Weirdstone of Brisingamen are old for him too; they're on my own TBR pile for now. The Human Comedy steers for the 9-12 crowd thematically.
I've had no luck finding Emil and the Detectives, The War of the Buttons or The Golem, so I can't speak to any of those.
One of the books we read in the meantime was T. Llew Jones's Barti ddu. Black Jake, captain of the Viper, is a pussy-cat compared to Bartholomew Roberts. She's chosen T. Llew Jones's Trysor y mor-ladron as our next story, showing a real taste for pirate stories.
Mrs C. and I do alternate nights, her with Dr Seuss, Kitten Friends, Rainbow Fairies sort of thing, and me with longer ('proper'?) books, alternating Welsh and English titles, so like the author of a recent article in the Guardian (http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2012/apr/07/parenthood-final-moments), I'll probably get the old heave-ho before we get to Great Northern?.
I'm currently "exposing him" to the original Anderson's fairty tales in all their un-PC glory, which we're both getting a kick out of. On the side I've been sampling Perrault's fairy tales as well, and they're even more outlandish. I didn't know the Disney version of Sleeping Beauty ends only halfway through the original story ... *shiver*
I've a few non-501 titles I want to explore with him; top of the list is The Phantom Tollbooth.
