Picked this for my 8yr old as a change from secret seven. Its tricky to find something thats not too old and scary but also isnt far too young and 'babyish'. This fits the bill great! Very funny and perfect for listening to just before bed.
Loved this funny book by Eoin Colfer- my son loved the parts about the tinfoil and THE LINE! A warmly written tale, and more importantly, highly recommended by my 8 year old- even his cat enjoyed listening to it. A great buy. Enjoy!
