This is the second book in this series that my Grandson and I have read together. He really seems to enjoy it, with several good chuckles. He really didn't have a problem reading most of the words, and got engrossed in the story. He was worried that Zeppi wouldn't make it out of the circus.
The book also has a few really cute illustrations, and he is looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
I think the author did a really good job presenting this story for this age group. The reading was challenging and yet it was at his level. It was not to long and he was able to finish the story.
I received this book from the author, and was not required to give a positive review.
