Reading level: 3rd grade.
Themes: magic, hunting, animals, humor
Audience: This book is good for early readers who are just getting into chapter books. The type is big and there are a lot of pictures and the story is very short, so it could be fun for students younger than 3rd grade (if they have reasonably good reading skills). This book is a great intro to Roald Dahl and his interesting, while off-beat, sense of humor.
