Charlie Higson, Alex Ryder, (auto) biographies based on historical people...
Like to get him some books for Christmas but stuck for ideas and my favorite person in Waterstones wasn't in today

How about the Flashman books by George Macdonald Fraser?

He's taken the bad boy bully from Tom Brown's Schooldays and inserted him into real Victorian historical events.
