My ds is 9, he loves all number puzzles especially the quick arithmetic ones in the Daily Mail for example but also sudoku.
I'm looking for a book of puzzles but think the kids ones look too easy and the others I found on Amazon are Mensa - I don't want to dishearten him!
Does anyone have any recommendations please?

Not a book, but how about these?

It's logic rather than numbers but he might well enjoy What Is The Name Of This Book? by Raymond Smullyan. My 10yo ds loves it and dh (a maths prof) says it is the kind of book that mathematicians enjoy.

The Moscow Puzzles might also be worth a try.

And this one.

It's a very old numeracy strategy publication - but some of the older year group puzzles from this might be of interest to him

(Just skip through the edu-waffle bits at the front as it's a PDF of a nicely spiral bound Govt publication) It's one I used to use a lot when I was doing supply teaching and home tutoring.
