This is a great story for kids (ages 9-15ish), but even the adults may enjoy it!

I actually did not read the book. I got it for my son who is 9 years old and he loved it. I think it only took him four days to read it because he could not put it down!

Much better than the movie it spawned. Lots of laughs and lots of thought material.
