A three-star rating isn't really indicative of how good these books were - I really liked them. I think they probably deserve five stars for a young audience. They are listed as juvenile fiction (which I think the library categorizes as up through fourth grade but I am not sure). As an adult, I really enjoyed reading them- I just could help feeling that they fell far short of the potential of the story. As an adult reader, it was like reading an abridged version of an amazingly wonderful story. So, I recommend them, I'd just like to see the authors write a grown up version!
