Head First Java from O'Reilly may be what you're after: http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/hfjava/
I learned to program Java from the tutorial link posted. It's not bad, and the whole API is very easy to use online. In my oppinion great documentation for a crappy language.
If they're looking for more of a multimedia experience, this might be useful:
The first edition of "Core Java" was very good. I have browsed later editions but it seemed to have gone downhill.
Just me (Sir to you)
Java How to Program, Deitel - gets a lot of good feedback ..
If you're looking for some surface exposure, I used Teach Yourself Java in 30 days (Sams) as a supplement to my college course and got a lot out of it.
Thanks for the ideas. I'll check them out. Looking for someting that will "Catch" a young person's mind. Not a dry syntax book that is appropriate for seasoned professionals.
