I've recently found a nice audio book in Spanish that I can recommend, it is similar to the first books of Harry Potter, so if your kid enjoys Harry Potter I think they would enjoy this too. The story is not "darker" than Harry Potter, but it is in a forest with some strange creatures, so not suitable for kids that get easily scared.
It is called La leyenda del bosque by Jara Santa Maria. It is situated in the north of Spain and explains a lot of the Basque mythology. It tells the story of three cousins, and the audio book is read by three different people, each making the voice for one of the cousins.
It is hard to find good audio books for older kids in Spanish and this is one I can certainly recommend! (And if you know others please share.)
I found the book in Audible (Amazon) and it is also in Storytel.
Marisa: "Victory moment:" My almost 4-year-old daughter told me yesterday in the ml (rough translation): "mom, there's something wrong with the cartoons, can you fix it, please?"... she was accidentally watching TV in the ML! So I gladly obliged

Amy: Was stunned to hear eldest had an anglophone (ml) accent when she began to read in the ML this afternoon!! Didn't last more than a paragraph until her brain switched language, but chuffed mum here!!

Mayken: My daughter found the secret stash of ml books I'd bought at the closure sale of the ml book store two months ago and hidden away for later. Guess it's a good time for new books now, right?
