When I first bought this book I read it with my eight year old son. We finish it the same we started it, we couldn’t put it down!! I am a teacher and I teacher a first and second grade bridge class. I am now reading it with them, chapter by chapter. They were disappointed when the weekend came! Excellent book…would highly recommend it!!!!!
