What an adorable, fun, and exciting read! This is definitely one of those stories every child should read. It was full of laughter, danger, and it even had some good morals.
While some younger children might get a bit frightened during the latter half of the book, I think it would be perfect for 9-13 year olds. My favorite part of the book was when Irving met the dwarves who have the most ingenious little names! I loved how they were named after food - for example: Pumpkin Olive-Jam, Mustard Cherry-Milk, and my personal favorite Raspberry Bacon-Taco. And that their food had human names! Who wouldn't to eat some Mashed Lindas and Tom.
Overall I thought it was a very clever book, that in the end taught children the importance of friendship and over coming your fears. 5 stars.
