I would give this book a 5 out of 5 stars. This was a long book so I would recommend this book to people who like to read chapter books and like to read books with mythical creatures. I would also recommend this book to people who like books such as the “Warriors” series by Erin Hunter. The age group I would advise this book to is 9-12 because it is a very long book and you would need to memorize the little dictionary at the beginning of the book to understand what they are saying in the story. I would also advise this book to both boys and girls.
