Logic puzzle books by Raymond M. Smullyan have been widely popular among 'mathy' children for decades. Try:
- "What Is the Name of This Book?"
- "The Lady or the Tiger?".

Smullyan, 94, is "an American mathematician, concert pianist, logician, Taoist philosopher, and magician". Here is his picture and his story (in his own words, lower on the page): http://mysite.verizon.net/vzeeaya7/raymondsmullyan/ .

Also consider books by "fellow polymath" Martin Gardner.
