    Slightly long stories for the age they are intended

    Bought this for my 10 year old son. He did not find it interesting enough. The stories are long for the age they are intended. This review may not be applicable for some children who are voracious readers. My son likes to read a story every night before hitting the bed. These stories did not suit him, since he was not able to finish a story a day. Nonetheless the stories are very good. But did not suit the reader I intended for.
