I bought a class set of this book because of the low, low price. I was pretty sure my students would be interested in it and they definitely were! They can't wait to read this book each day. It has such engaging stories and the words are not too difficult for them. (They are English Language Learners in 4th grade). The level is about 3rd grade, but there are also pictures interspersed to aid in comprehension. I highly recommend it.
