Be aware

I previewed this book for our elementary school library (K-5) to see if it would be appropriate for my 4th and 5th grade audience. I liked the quirky humor, odd characters and non-stop adventure but take issue with the "almost rape" of the lead female character and the two main characters "sleeping together" (no sex but definitely suggestive). I decided this book is better for the middle school crowd - 6th and up.
