Dominic Samaroo As long as you are old enough to read, you are old enough to read this book. The language and vocabulary is not complicated at all and the content is very tame (if a bit racially insensitive at times)
Asher I think a good age to read this book is 8-10 because I believe it would be harder for younger ages to get into the book, it would seem boring to them.
