4- Readability/ The story was terrific, but it had a couple of continuity errors that made stumble a little bit
5- Age Appropriate/ I think kids 8-12 will enjoy this adventure. Amazon lists this for 17, I think that is a typo.
5- Holds Interest/ The boys got up to a lot of stuff on their Christmas Eve jaunt. I enjoyed it.
4- Did I like It?/ I did like it, but it isn’t really obvious that this is a series and so the mentions of previous adventures without explanation made it kind of hard to follow. I didn’t know why dad was away, or what happened during any of the things mentioned. Still it was a fun story and I am glad things worked out the way they did.
