Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome story! I read this story to my four and seven year old kids this past summer and we all absolutely loved this modern adventure. The kids kept borrowing it from the library and whenever it wasnt available, were so disappointed. So obviously, I bought a copy for our house. It is always is bed with one of the kids!
