A quick and fun read with excellent values.

MoralityJustice and kindness are just a couple of the strong values upheld by the characters.
Spiritual ContentThe book's point is to teach that it's wrong to misuse the name of God. The characters are Christians.

Crude or Profane Language or Content"Oh, my God" is said three times. This is condemned.
