Call me ripped off. The abridgement did nothing to make the work more approachable for a nine-year old. I am still apologizing to my daughter for the most painful three minutes of noise to escape from the speakers of my car since The Wiggles. This may scare her away from American literature permanently. I suggest just purchasing the unabridged and saving this edition for time-outs.
Fascinating details in a well-organized work read with enthusiasm. This book created a terrific car ride to Salem for the whole family! It set the scene nicely and kept us all riveted. Great explanations and I really liked the epilogue that traced the lives of the survivors.
