Loved this - a real page-turner! I ordered it for my son and read it myself and thorougly enjoyed it. Lots of great description of Tibet and thus not only exciting but educational as well. Recomment highly to anyone who loves a great adventure story, emotional parent/child relationship development and page turner in one.
I am a connoisseur of great books for kids, and this is definitely one! Great story, amazing flow and characters that take your heart. I recommend it for every kid (or adult) that loves a good read!! It is written at a 5th grade level but the smart 3rd grader would love it, too!
