Picturing Programs: an Introduction to Computer Programming
by Stephen Bloch
Publisher: College Publications 2010
Number of pages: 480

This book can be used at the high school (and perhaps middle school) level, while providing enough advanced concepts not usually found in a first course to challenge a college student.
