Loved this book. Started reading it to my children and had to skip ahead to find out what happens! It is a great wholesome story of adventure and friendship. I think it has a good moral compass and will be appropriate even for younger children, although the language is very descriptive and can be to long for them.

"A slender wheat-colored Siamese cat was curled on his knee, chocolate-colored front paws curved in towards one another, sapphire eyes blinking occasionally as he stared into the fire."
