If your kids love puzzles... Aug 11, 2009
This book is great for younger readers. The book gives readers a chance to solve a word puzzle throughout the book revealing clues learned by the main characters at a pace that allows the reader to have a chance at figuring it out first.
As an adult I didn't love the ending - but a young reader can forgive the clumsy ending.
The movie that came out is loosely based on the book and is very "G" rated - although there is a giant mole that is a bit scary.
