Don't get him a book. Everything you need to know about C# at entry level is right here:

I've given up on paper books altogether. Errata remain errata forever and you can't search inside them.

I wouldn't worry about it being overly complex, he's a 13 year old kid and therefore has the kind of brainpower idly going spare that we can only dream of. Besides which, dropping him in off the deep end will more likely mirror a real-world situation he could easily find himself in - look at it as a test within a test, does he really want this kind of life?

Be careful what you wish for..
