I would recommend this for all young readers. The language may be a little advanced for age 4, depending on the child, but the ideas and the illustrations will still carry the story; the language in the concepts could probably be interesting up through age 7 or 8, because there is enough to take from the story and the pictures as a jumping off point for further conversation. The mad, bad, wild, butt-biting crocodile also adds enough interest for any children who, on the face of it, might resist a story that seems to be about a nice princess.
On the negative side, it’s unfortunate that this is yet another children’s book that seems to show the world as consisting only of Caucasian people. The princess & castle type of story takes place in a fantasy Early Europe, when “European” was synonymous with “Caucasian.” So the author is just being consistent with this. Still, if we can imagine talking, magic crocodiles, maybe we can imagine less homogenous human characters in our contemporary books. This may be a consideration for families, like ours, that seek diversity in their reading.
