UGH! If you don't mind killing of some human or some animal throughout the whole boo, even though culturally correct, go ahead and read this book. We read this book as a part of Eastern Hemisphere history. The setting is Vietnam during the war. If you can get past the gore of this book, it tells the story of of a young mans encounter with many animals in his hamlet. We see a little bit of the culture and their beliefs and superstitions.
The book is listed as ages 7 - 10. Maybe the reading LEVEL is that, but, I'm not sure I would read this to a 7 year old due to content. Daughter was 11 at the time.
Please read other reviews for spoilers. I won't list them here.
