I really like a book that your 12 year old boy child might go for. It's

"Questions you always wanted to ask about English
(but were afraid to raise your hand)" by Maxwell Nurnberg

It is a "lively and humorous guide to English usage" (wording from front
cover). English usage, vocabulary, spelling and punctuation are covered
and the following excerpts (from the back cover) are an indication of the
fun way in which the author presents the subject matter to the reader:

"In which case has the dog the upper paw?
(a) A clever dog knows its master.
(b) A clever dog knows it's master.
Which required greater imagination?
(a) I lay on the psychiatrist's couch for almost an hour.
(b) I lied on the psychiatrist's couch for almost an hour."

I can wholeheartedly recommend this one.
