And I thought
I was interested in the opportunity to read this book.  I had heard of the adult book/story previous but never had the chance to read it. 
I was anticipating and looking forward to receiving the book so I could share with my grandson's. 
When I received it I my expectations were met.  

The story is simple and easy to read.  The book is recommended for youth ages 9-12.  It is nicely illustrated with 1 or  2  illustrations in the first few chapters which are relatively short no more than 10 pages.  Chapter 5 got longer and seemed too involved to me for young readers.   Some chapters were 9 or 11 pages while others were 15. 

Younger readers might enjoy the book better read in a group or with a parent.
I think this would be a great book for homeschoolers.  
I enjoyed it and look forward to reading with my grandson

I received a complimentary copy from Cross Focused Reviews
