This book is likely suitable for all ages in content, but the language is old english and likely difficult for younger readers to understand. That said, I loved this book. Great fun story with challenges along the way. Children given the right training and given responsibilities can accomplish great things. I would love to see this turned into a movie someday or re-written for kids in common day language.
