Young Reader Reaction: I found this book to be my an all-time favorite of the books I have read so far. This was one of the cutest books ever! I am older than the target audience and I loved it. I would recommend this book for anyone who is in elementary school. I would give it two thumbs up!
Preschooler reaction: S/He liked listening to the chapters and kept asking to see the pages. We know s/he was looking for illustrations, but even after there weren't any, we were asked to keep reading.
Adult Reader Reaction: Given the age of the child, we read this in short chapter "bursts." It was an enjoyable read for all of us.
Pros: The story moves quickly and the chapters are well parsed, so that if you only have time for one or two, it's easy to put the book down and come back.
Cons: None, really.
Borrow or Buy: Borrow. This is for elementary students, but if you are a little older and want to read for fun, this is a good book to try. Like many mysteries, it can only take a few, periodic readings.
