The Cronicles of Prydain
I tried reading these books when I was young but I think I started in the middle of the series and it was just too hard for me to get into them. Chantel and I have read all five and I thought they were awesome. I gave my office mates and others who caught me reading them the line, "well, I have to read them to make sure they're all right for my 6½ year old son." They are not too dark or too violent, check. Lots of action to get Owen's attention, check. Almost no romance whatsoever—the heroine is somewhat of a tomboy—thus Owen, a member in good standing of the “no-kissing-club” will not revolt, check.
I plan on owning them someday soon.
