This book is good for ages 7-9. It's an early chapter book series with a plot that builds fast. With only 9 chapters, it makes it suitable for short reading sessions and builds confidence in finishing books. Some language is a bit older, with words like crap and stupid, and phrases like, "it was so hot I wanted to die", but no swearing or sexual innuendos. Genre is Fantasy. Has pictures with short pages, so it is not intimidating to the younger crowd but also feels like a real chapter book.
Thumbs Up for age 8.
