This book seems to be for children younger than 9 - 12 years old. I ordered this for my 9 year old niece for Xmas and it seems she needs a higher level book than this. I think the book descriptions may be labeled incorrectly on Amazon.com. After receiving, the book I looked at the back and it says Reading Level 3 (RL3). My niece is in 4th grade and reading 4.5 - 6.5 reading level books.

Be aware that this book is actually for 3rd graders. Unfortunately, I ordered several books from Amazon.com that said for ages 9 - 12, however, upon receiving them and checking the back of the books, I find that they are for RL 2.2, 2.4, and 3. These books are entitled:

Miami Jackson Sees It Through
Miami Jackson Gets It Straight

I bought this book for my daughter and she loves it. I enjoy the broad imagination the author uses. The written langugae introduces new words to young readers and help them to use words to express feelings and thoughts. My daughter enjoys reading this book to her friends and to the family. I am excited that she is excited about reading.
