This fantasy is fun for the entire family. Our family enjoyed reading it aloud together and it is a good fit for all ages and genders. However, readers should be warned that, unlike the last book, this book ends on a significant cliffhanger. If you hate being kept in suspense, you might want to wait until the third book in the series is published.
Recommended ages--8 and up
