I would recommend this book to be read aloud to elementary school kids. It is written for the younger set, but the length of the book (242 pages) might bog down the young reader if an adult isn't there to make it exciting and interactive. The cats are very lovable, and would definitely entice young kids to find out what happens at the end of the book. I think the cover art could be changed to look a little more mainstream and you'd have a real winner of a book.
