It's not a children's book, it's a college paper. The topic is very interesting, but it's way too advanced for almost any kid. The vast majority of the book is dense text with words that are not just challenging, but potentially a bit off-putting for kids, it's just really formal. And did I mention that it's dense? There's no way even my very, very bright 10 year-old would have the patience to follow this story when my eyes kept glazing over. It's a shame because it's a cool story and a lovely book. But unless a kid is a serious scholar, I can't see them getting through this one.
