As much as we love the idea of this story and Bellboo begged me to read it every night, it was very detailed and hard to follow. Many times I heard her say 'I don't understand what's happening' as I was reading and then I would have to stop and explain it all to her. It was hard to read more than one chapter at a time because of this and in turn this made it take a long time to read.
I'd defiantly recommend this to an older child 11 plus, especially if the child will be reading it alone. All in all great concept of a story but the telling was hindered by unnessisary information.
