Top customer reviews
The book has four chapters with enough grey-scale illustrations to satisfy children who are used to pictures on every page. It's ideal for reading chapter by chapter but can be read in a single sitting.
While the story is an interesting one, the language is simple. I first bought a copy for a grandson who speaks Italian most of the time and he loved the book: it saved me having to simplify the language and explain or skip culture-specific references. The second copy was for a younger English-speaking grandchild. Based on my experience I'd say the book was suitable for four to six year olds, male and female.
