Any book suggestions for a 12 year old boy, who is really into building things? He loved 'The Dangerous Book for Boys' ...anything else out there along those lines?

What can I do next?

There's a great website called that offers lots of options for boys who don't otherwise want to read (I have an 11 yr old boy). Also check with your librarian - they are super helpful in this regard - or the school librarian or his teachers..
