I found this book and started reading it for my girls, 8.5 and 6.5. The language is a bit advanced for the 6.5 year old and I do need to explain certain period settings and prop devices to my 8.5 year old. The writing is excellent and my girls are very engaged in the book.

I will not place any spoilers, but I was terribly upset at the ending. It was unsatisfying and perhaps echoed something Grandaddy explained as finishing the experiment. Once it is done, it's over and you lose the excitement of the actual experiment.
