So cool! I was thinking "They look suspiciously like Frances" when I noticed who the illustrator was :)

Does anyone here have an idea of an age range for readers of the book?  I have several young relatives who I think would enjoy the story but not sure which of the four I should purchase this for.  I know kids can grow into books, but if you get something for Christmas you don't want to be told in two years you'll enjoy this.  Ages: 5 (too young I think); 7 (maybe young, but also loves all things creative); 9 (I may have a hard time getting the book away from his Mom because she will love it) and 10 (appropriate but he has dyslexia - if it is too verbose he may tune out).  Any advice or thoughts would be appreciated.

Will this be cropped into widescreen too?

My instinct is that 7 would be just right.  But every kid is different.

That's true, but it looks like two copies will be ordered tomorrow, and I will peruse it to see if it would be good for the other two.  Thanks for the insight.
