My son has thoroughly enjoyed this book.
“Best Christmas present ever!”
I bought this book for both my nieces and one exclaimed it was the best Christmas present she had received, while the other began reading it straight away.
One grandchild read it in one sitting the other one took a little longer. It was good because they could discuss the story. [age 11 boy and girl]
