Why would you recommend or not recommend this book? I recommend this book to children 9-12 years of age. I believe they will most enjoy the book.
What are some of the book's themes? Greed. Ishmael is so consumed with greed he does not know the difference in right/wrong.
What I didn't like. Really did not find anything I did not like. de Montigny wrote a book that any young tween would enjoy.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
