Hmmm... Is "Python for the Absolute Beginner" a good book?  Would Doug or can anyone recommend this book (or another) for a 7th grader to learn programming with?  

I've had my son play with "Karel the Robot" in the past, and I am "threatening" to have him use Python to write something based on the Yu-Gi-Oh game this Summer, but I am not sure what resource to use to help him learn.  (Idle minds problem and all that... whoops, almost a pun.)

Also, is 7th grade too young for an introduction to MP's Flying Circus?  :)
