Help! Need reading recommendations for fourth grade boy

Recommended Posts

I live overseas and lack access to a library. I use Sonlight for my reading but the readers are not enough for my boy since he loves to read. Thankfully, I have a Kindle for him but I have had to return books a few times already since my son said they were too violent or dark. He reads very well and prefers historical fiction books. Any book under 200 pages is usually too short for him. Does anyone have any recommendations for books that are on Kindle that would be good for my son? He is in the fourth grade.
