A very interesting story with lots of loose threads that are all tied together at the end. Somewhat suspenseful but not frighting. There are several life lessons to be learned if you read it to your youngsters and deftly reveal them. Team up, work together, bullies can be defeated if you gather a team and catch them by surprise. Lend a helping hand to those who need it. Oh yeah, you might want to help little ones keep track of all the different characters.

It was a really good book and the narrator was really good at doing voices.
