I picked this book to read on my free time, because I read the other books in the series and thought they were pretty good. This book’s strength is that it gives very good detail, but it’s weakness is you probably won’t get much build on your vocabulary unless you are in elementary school. Even though the book doesn’t build your vocabulary much, it does have a good choice of words. I think kids would mostly enjoy this book if they are in middle school. If I were to go back in time I would choose this book again, because it’s worth reading again for the reasons above. I’m not really a big reader but this series has really helped me have a better view on reading than before. If you want to read a fun book or series in your free time I would highly recommend this book and series. If I were to rate this book out of 10 stars I would give it a 9 or 9.5.
