Oliver Moon and the Broomstick Battle
We read this book as a family, reading a few chapters every day. Everyone enjoyed and understood the story (ages 3, 7 & 10). Although probably aimed at about 7yr old, it was exciting enough for everyone to want to read another Oliver Moon title. Plenty of magic and the funny, silly names that the classmates had kept them talking about it for weeks. I would recommend this title.
