  • Wonderful for all ages!

    A friend recommended this book to me last spring, so I read it and fell in love with it! I am currently reading it to my third grade class, and they are mesmerized by it. I have had such an incredible response from the kiddos that I am buying them all a copy. If you like a good adventure, this is the book for you! Very easy to read!

    This was a required book for my daughter's summer reading list. She read it in just a few days and said it was much better than she thought it would be.
