its more of a book for teenagers my age, im almost 18, and i found when i reread the book after about 6 or so years i connected to it a lot better. (i had to write an essay on 2 books from my childhood and i chose this book) its better for 16 year old's and up because its about leaving and going out in the world on your own.....but that's just my personal opinion.

Will keep it in the bookcase a bit longer
We were given this book as a gift when my son was an infant and I read it to him for the first time recently. He's 4 and very literal. He didn't understand what was going on, was a bit spooked by the scary bits, and actually wanted to stop reading it. I really enjoy the book myself so I'll try it again when he's a bit older.
