Kristen Yes. I just read this book because my 10 year old daughter read it and then recommended it to me.
Nikki Yes, I think so. I'm reading this with 3rd graders now and they were getting into it. at first they didn't get the slang way farmer Hogget's wife spoke. And there's the use of the word bitch for female dog pretty frequently but if it's explained to them the true meaning of the word, they accept that.
