to be one of the most knowledgeable people I know on the subject of Science Fiction (with the possible exception of some science fiction authors I correspond with (see David DrakeThe Complete Hammer's Slammers: Volume I, Tom Kratman Countdown: M Day ([[ASIN:1439134642 Countdown: M Day 3)]] (Countdown 3)]],Steve Perry (Countdown 3)]],Steve Perry ,Steve Perry The 97th Step, and Mad Mike WilliamsonFreehold).I asked Mr. Jordin what the first science fiction book he read was. He told me Freddy and the Space Ship in elementary school. Well, I just had to read it.
I suggest you read it too; Age range is probably a bright eight year old to age eighty. I highly recommend it. Probably more suited for males than females.

P.S. If you haven't read something by any of the above authors, you should start now. I can give you a suggested reading list if you wish.
I suspect the author was influenced by the The Hobbit
When you hear John McDonough's deep, growly voice, it seems immediately familiar.
Listeners are drawn to the rich, warm tones of this veteran actor and singer.
From Broadway to television and film, and from voice-overs to opera, McDonough's career encompasses the full gamut of acting experience.
He has appeared with the Hartford Symphony and with the Glimmerglass Opera Company, and he is the Fox Family Channel's The All New Captain Kangaroo.
As a narrator for Recorded Books, he has received wonderful reviews.
"MCDONOUGH'S NARRATION IS RICH AND FULL OF FEELING FOR THE CHARACTERS."
