My daughter and I really enjoyed this book. She’s 8, and just starting chapter books on her own this year. She can get a bit discouraged still, and this book was perfect for her! It’s a mixture of illustrations and text, and she really enjoyed having both! I would absolutely recommend this for readers that are just started to exit picture books are enter the world of chapters!
