I believe that Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" books are popular with boys as well as girls despite one of the main child characters being female.
Going back to John Wilson's post on 25 great girl characters video 9http://www.tarboard.net/tarboard/messages/43509.htm) I find that I had read about half of the books mentioned, some I hadn't because I was too old!
I suspect that good literate children's books will appeal regardless of whether the main character is a hero or a heroine.
