Sizing- probably a 20" unicycle would work. Some of the sellers show a chart of size vs height, but that is pretty variable. Note that you can cut the seat posts shorter to lower the seat. The critical factor for a short person is being able to reach the lower pedal while seated.
Place to buy- I have bought 3 unicycles new on Ebay from "I_sell_low" or something like that. But just looking right now, he's not especially cheap at the moment.
The Torker LX is a pretty good deal. Seems to be well-made. It won't stand up to jumping off roofs and stuff like that, but should last an 11-year-old a good while. The Torker CX is a little bit cheaper but a lot crumbier in build quality. To get anything much better than an LX, you have to make a big jump in price.
