This is an excellent book. I would recommend it for fourth through sixth graders. The characters' choices and the adventure in this book's plot kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. One of my favorite parts was when Nick and Elias were hiding behind a rock at Smiley Pit trying to fight off a band of pirates. Nick and Elias made all the Pirates throw their weapons into a huge pit.
This is a great book for readers of any age who wants to learn more about history and who love adventure and suspense. The stories and situations are historically appropriate and interesting. Thank you Jennifer Bradbury for writing an excellent book for young readers!
