I bought this book for my son who wanted to read up about hamsters and how to take care of them as he was interested in having them as pets for near future. He is about 10 years old. The level of reading was appropriate enough for him as he is an advanced reader. I didn't realize when I bought this though that it is written by an author in UK and so many of the products mentioned are more so available in the UK and not the United States and perhaps not as relevant. Minor detail.
