I thought the story was a great read for my nine year old daughter. It teaches there are consequences to bad decisions that are made even when they are for a good reason. It also shows that even when brother and sisters don't always get along, they pull together to help out. My daughter has read the book more than once and any clean, touch of humor book, with a life lesson that I can find that she will read is an 'A' in my book. GREAT read for kids and the illustrations aren't bad either!
