Fantasy Books--Know any?

I have a student in my 2nd grade class next year that is G&T. He's reading at a 9th grade reading level. He's really into fantasy/magic/knights  books. Since he is not the norm, I do not have a ton of young adult chapter books for him so I have been stocking up.

So I ask, do you know of any good young adult fantasy books...dragons, magic, etc that students enjoy? What better group to ask than the "teacher goths," eh? ;) 

This student has read the Harry Potter series as well as all of the Chronicles of Narnia. I recently purchased from amazon: 

-The Bartimaeus Trilogy by Stroud, Jonathan
-From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by Konigsburg
-A Wrinkle in Time by L'Engle, Madeleine
-Book of Enchantments by Wrede, Patricia C.
-Sorcery and Cecelia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot  by Wrede
-The Unsuspecting Mage: Book One of the Morcyth Saga by Pratt
-The Enchanted Forest Chronicles: Dealing with Dragons / Searching for Dragons / Calling on Dragons / Talking to Dragons [Box set]

as well as a book I found today for myself: The Alchemist: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicolas Flammel by M. Scott. I am a Harry Potter nerd, and recognized the name Flammel from The Sorcerer's Stone. (So far it's an ok read.)

Any other ideas of books appropriate for a young reader in this genre? Thanks!
