I bought several of these books for my daughter, who is 5. The recommended age range is from 4 - 8 years but these books are not meant for children at the younger end of the age range, especially those just learning to read. There are very few pictures and it definitely did not hold my daughter's interest, even though she loves Ariel and the other Disney princesses. I would say these books are more appropriate for kids aged 7 or 8 and up, depending on their reading ability. I had planned to read a few pages each night to teach her how to follow along with a longer story, but forget that. Kids that age want a story that can be read from start to finish at one time. Still, good books for slightly older children.

My 6 year old (she reads very well for her age) daughter loved this book. She could not put it down. She finished the book in about three days. She just recently began reading on her own and this is the perfect start for independent readers.

My first grader loved this book! Unlike some of the other chapter books for her age, this one had beautiful color pictures every few pages, which is a nice transition from her younger picture books to chapter books. The text is still a bit advanced for her reading level, but she was enagaged in the story and looked forward to reading a couple of chapters each night.

We recently discovered these short chapter books at a book fair. My daughter LOVES them! She's usually so hyper at night when it gets to be bed time, but these have really calmed her down. There aren't very many pictures, so she really has to listen to the story and create the image in her mind. I love the time that we have together when reading these!

My 4 year old loved it even though it was a little long. Ariel is her favorite Disney princess and its nice to read a different story than that of the movie.

This book will go down in history as the first chapter book my burgeoning reader consumed completely on her own. Don't let the Disney name fool you, the only thing Disney about this is Ariel and the other characters. The story is completely original (a mystery!) and even Ariel's personality is more assertive and independent than that femme fatale version of her on screen. The prince stays home while the princess has her mysterious adventure, solving riddles, finding clues. There's no evil older woman to get in the young ingenue's way either. The only challenges she faces are the natural limits of her own intelligent deciphering of the clues along the way to solving the mystery. The comic relief offered by Scuttle is transformed on the page to clever and hilarious wordplay that sent both my daughter and me in a fit of giggles. Highly recommend this entire series to get your young reader who still likes pretty color pictures well on the way to independent and enjoyable reading.

My daughter is four and a half and just starting to read. I was looking for some longer books that I could read TO her along the way and she requested they be about princesses. I was wary because I'm not a big fan of the Disney ladies but I've found that the plots in this book series are generally better than the originals! Since the stories all take place after Happily Ever After, the gals can have adventures beyond "finding and capturing a man." :-)

In this story, Ariel has to solve a mystery when a young girl she's been teaching goes missing. It's a fun story line and my daughter enjoyed listening to it. We read a couple chapters a night and I liked being able to introduce her to the idea of a story that unfolds over time -- unlike the short picture books we read in a single sitting.
