I didn't find it difficult to read the text that was missing its vowels but didn't find the story very good or interesting. Kids perhaps, 8+ year-olds, might find it funny to figure out the words missing their vowels or try to pronounce the words written as they are. It does have a great message in the end - come to the library and find lots of books to read, book with vowels too!

I was not very impressed with this book. I found it hard to read as an adult and I' couldn't small children understanding the story. The missing vowels from the words made the story not understandable. I am sure there are better books out there to explain the concepts of vowels.
