The language is kept very simple and so is a good fit for 8-12 years. Also the beautiful and vibrant illustrations will keep them very happy. The last chapter, The Boy who swallowed a nail reminds our family of our son who swallowed a magnet when he was a couple of years old. This book will take you down a beautiful memory lane for adults. We can immediately bond with the scenes and stories no matter where we grew up (be it north or south India). Though its not roll on the floor funny, this book gives you a warm feeling like a beautiful hug and keeps you engaged till you have finished the book.
