You could try John Walker´s "Winning in the Opening" (Cadogan chess 1997). All Walker's books are aimed at young and novice players. Perhaps read what others have said from:

As another choice you could try Seirawan's "Winning Chess Openings".

Also excellent, but harder to get, is "Understanding the Open Games(Except Ruy Lopez)" by Andy Soltis,Edmar Mednis,Jack Peters and William Hartston, R.H.M Press, 1980

I've been asked to buy a book on chess (and more specifically openings) for my 9 year old nephew. Does anyone have any recommendations about what to buy, or what not to buy?
