Pumpkin is more bothered by 'smoochies' than the scary stuff. Got through HP 4 and some of 5 with him, but really even he realized it was a bit beyond him and, again, the teen love stuff is just icky to him right now. Bella will sometimes get worried if she's listening in (HP or Percy Jackson), but I always tell her it's going to be OK. Of course, while he's seen a good bit of cartoon violence, Pumpkin still doesn't want to watch the trash compactor scene in Star Wars...(we still skip Obi-wan dying, too).
Got Rick Riordan's The Lost Hero - same world as Percy Jackson (some of the same characters), but primary characters are new. And btw - boy got almost nothing but books on his birthday (I also got him a venus fly trap), and the next day, when he got a check in the mail - wanted to buy, you guessed it, more books! That's my boy!
