This is book is full of morally uplifting, well, goodness. A wonderful mystery adventure with plenty of cleverness and humor. I nice clean plot with no lurking evil. There is absolutely no foul or crude language. I've ended up reading this book time and time again(and have now added it to my personal collection!) it's just the type that doesn't get old! This book is good for all ages if you just want to put your nose in a good fast-paced, well developed novel. Younger audiences may become confused as this book has an advanced vocabulary.
