better for middle school/junior high than elementary

I read this to my seven year old daughter and she was too young to get much of the humor, though she found the story entertaining enough. You need some context of hippie/pagan culture and American pop culture to get many of the jokes, so I had to do a lot of explaining. Also, the idea of totally worthless parents was more horrifying and inconceivable to her than humorous. I personally found the book to be pretty weird. I would imagine the tongue-in-cheek, spoof-type humor would appeal to middle school and junior high students. It would be over the head of most elementary students though, and as an adult I found it too goofy.

Boomer lit for kids!

I wasn't sure this story was fit for children at first. I had a hard time getting through the first CD. As other reviewer stated the main character's parents are horrible people. My struggle was that I just didn't care about any of the characters and the story line was a literary rubberneck. We are now on the 3rd CD and it is starting to grow on me, like a great big bottom. I added a higher age not because there is anything lewd or overtly inappropriate, just that I am not sure kids will get most of the humor. It's seems more fitting for boomers.
