Nice Story, well read - beware the death count!

"A nice adventure story with a happy ending " Finn, aged 7

The kids enjoyed this story, it was nicely read and had lots going on. However, the death count is quite unlike anything I've heard for children before! A few moments of 'peril' too, so beware. Also for those who may be bothered - there is a hint towards teenage pregnancy / out of wedlock babies at the very end. My kids thought it odd that no marriage occurred, even though other characters were husbands and wives. I'm not overly old fashioned, it just seemed odd in a kids book, I'm particular the way it occurred. Overall message I guess is that education could save your life...
