The book is one of those books that are fun for "the whole family", while it's most apropriate for this age-group, the scary themes are moderate so reading it for a younger child should not be a problem. Main topics are friendship, morals, rivalry and the typical friction with parents that ensue as the kids grow up. But it manages to avoid being overly sappy. And like most of Lindgreens books, excel at presenting kids as primary actors in their own lives, in a believable voice that kids can relate to.
