Though a tween may be a bit too young to appreciate some of the subtler aspects of his work and perhaps a bit too old to take as much pleasure as they ought to in the fantastical parts of the book. Shel Silverstein probably would suffer the same fate among that age group.

On a related note, Roald Dahl's short fiction for adults is sublime.
