This was a gift for my 8-year-old son who loves to read and loves Transformers. He liked the book very much and only needed help with a few words the first time he read it. I think the story was well done- it follows the story of only PART of the second Transformer movie focusing, of course, on the relationship between the brothers Optimus Prime and Megatron. Our copy fell apart within a matter of days, but honestly, most books around here seem to do that. (we have three children younger than our 8-year-old as well). In the end, I'm still glad I purchased it.
