I first read this series when I was in fourth grade. It was my first fantasy series that actually had chapters. It has stuck with me for all these years, and I can't ever seem to forget it. I suggest that those who are young and have never before read a fantasy book, or wish to get into fantasy, to read this for it is a wonderful introduction.
