I'd recommend this book to any young person.
He got an A+ on his report. woo hoo!
Full of action and good illustrations, my family of boys listened wide-eyed with amazement as 10-year-old Edward fires the gun and saves his sister and mother from murder and fire.
What I got was a piece of History. It is Dutch oriented and historically fascinating but the best part is that I have a Dutch friend. I passed this little jewel on to her. She can easily read the dialog and sing the lullaby. It will go on to her daughter. It is a bit longer read for me, but the story line is fine.
