      Good gracious, what a story! Yes, I'd say from the description that it was a bit much for a third grader. Still, when I was reading books like that, the s-x pretty much was over my head. I just shrugged it off and kept reading for the adventure.

      I used to be entertained by Frank Yerby, read a couple of his--The Foxes of Harrow, I think one of them was called. He's one of those writers who long ago fell out of fashion.
