My son begged me to buy this book, as he had already read the first in the series. When I saw the price for it on Overtock compared to what was being asked in a local retailer, how could I refuse. The book arrived very quickly and my son couldn't have been happier. He is eight and finished reading the book within five days. In fact, he enjoyed it so much that he spent extra time reading it to his little sister as her bedtime story. I have to say that I even found humor in the story. Overall, I highly recommend this book, and I am sure my son would agree. In fact, the only problem I have now is getting him to quit asking me when the next in the series is comming out. Thanks again Overstock.
