It'd be hard to understand unless you've read the 1st one. It was pretty cute and for me it was an easy-read. It kind of shows you should give time to your kids or else they'll bring world-havoc.

Recommends it for: young fans of Harry Potter
Readers too young for Harry Potter may enjoy this series but would do better having mom or dad read it to or along with them, as there are lots of footnotes that add flavor to the story but are also more than a little distracting and may sidetrack younger readers. I would not recommend it for a child with poor or mediocre reading comprehension skills.
