read with my first grade daughter. Robert's friend Aaron is a gypsy and there is discrimination amoungst some of the people in the book. We discussed that. Also the kids boating alone at age 9. lots of un upervised kid activities. A good read though, we both enjoyed it.

We enjoy Carolyn Haywood books. The children have fun adventures (with little to no adult supervision). In this one, we enjoy the undercurrent against prejudice, the friendships made, and the happy ending.
