Enjoyed! Dec 26, 2007
This is a good book. My seven year old daughter read it. The story is great, but it is written in a dialect that I found a little difficult. However, my daughter was able to read it and enjoyed it. It has some pictures in it but not on every page. The chapters are rather short so they make for great reading segments.
