I had a copy of this book when I was only 10-14 yrs old and loved it. I recently found it in my library and am reading it aloud to my five children ages 5-12. They won't let me put it down! I like the clean content, plenty of adventure without the typical gruesome things todays books and movies consider adventure. I still find this book as fascinating and interesting as I did 25 years ago! I have 4 boys and 1 girl, so one can't say it is a "girlie" story ....I suppose the setting and Mr Peterkin attracts the boys!
