Initially I thought this would be a good book for my oldest (6) to read with his Dad as they're both avid star gazers, however we have ended up reading this as a family at breakfast and after dinner. My 4 yr old finds the antics of Freddy quite amusing. Quite simply, the book is gripping and teaches you facts in a very fun way. Looking forward to carrying on with this book and then the sequels.
A separate copy sent to my son's best friend (also 6).
I haven't read it, all I can say it that he loved it thought be prepared with a dictionary, it doesn't use unnecessary big words but it will exp
and the vocabulary
! Well worth it!
