I read it (an adult)
I won this book in a Toppsta give away and so thought it was best to read it before giving it to a child in my class to read and review and I was unsure how appropriate it would be for them. I would have never chosen this book due to it not seeming like my cup of tea but I got so into it, so much so that it is possibly one of my favourite reads recently!
This book is really well written and keeps you wanting to read on to see what happens next. The descriptions are also fabulous and I could imagine myself walking into the school cafeteria with Sherman!
I think this book is maybe more appropriate for children slightly older than my p5/6s but I still think some of the more advanced and mature readers would enjoy and engage with it well.
