I am reading it and enjoying it, b4 i give it to my grandson. He reads everything he can get his hands on, including all Harry Potter bks. I wanted to make sure it was age appropriate, so decided to read a few chapters and I like it for us both. I will get the other one soon. Wish it was hardback.

Just finished reading this book to my kids who range from 2 to 9, all of us absolutely loved this book! We read about a chapter a night and they hung on to every word. I just bought the 2nd book of the series for my oldest and we're anxiously awaiting to crack the cover. This book has a great story line, very fun way to pull in all of the fairy tale classics as the set of twins in the book go through a magical world on a scavenger hunt, collecting all of the items needed to grant them the wishing will enjoy this page turner!
