We listened to the audio version of this book while traveling to Iowa and it was a great find. Right from the get go we were hooked. It was just right for the family with the perfect mix of action, adventure, comedy and magic. The book even inspired us to create works of art from our favorite scenes. This book is great for everyone, though the recommended reading age is eight and up, we agreed that listening to it is great for all ages. Jonathan Auxier did a wonderful job captivating a wide range of ages. We look forward to reading or listening to more of his work.
