"I really enjoyed it. It is very well-written, and easy to follow. I'm sure that younger readers would be challenged and entertained.
The story-line is interesting. Who doesn't love a kidnapping story, right? And the characters are loveable. I thought of them as a mix of the kids from The Sandlot and The Little Rascals."
