In a similar vein, I found in the used book store by my house a year or 
two ago, "The Bytes Brothers" Volume 2.  Billed as a "Solve-it-yourself 
computer mystery, it takes you through a story, with clues, the idea is 
to write a basic program to solve some of the puzzles through-out the 
book.  It's pretty simple stuff, but would be perfect for an 8-9 year 
old just learning some BASIC on their family's home computer.  I've 
looked around for these and haven't found these in any other used stores.

...and now that I check amazon, the entire series of these is out there 
for about a penny a piece, I may have to burn a Christmas dollar, 
literally just one to get the rest.
