Recommends it for: Children middle school up to adults
I love Henty's. Some of them, I do admit, are better than others, but we have never read one we didn't like. I love that we can get them all free for Kindle. I would like to own them in hardback, some day, but for now I am happy to just have access to them without having to keep borrowing them from the library. I read this book aloud to Christopher for school. Henty has written a lot of books for the time period we are currently studying, so we have quite a few to read this year.
