Three days ago, I tried to read this book to guess how easy to read is this. And I couldn't stop to read this until I came to page 30. Then I decided I'd finish this.
This story is fun. It has many jokes and some serious parts. I had enjoyed the story.
And in the story students have eels for their meals! The moat around castle of the school has eels. But students don't like the meals from eels. I thought if I were a cook of the school, I would make very delicious dishes of eels (see last Friday's topic).
This book is more difficult than The Zack Files.
This book has 10157 words.

Happy Reading!
