Target age for children's literature

I am nearing completion of a book for a competiton entry. It is children's literature and three age categories apply. Without detailing the age groups, as I do not wish to prejudice any answers, what key points would you look out for in writing for specific ages of younger reader?

Also, here is a link to an excerpt. For what age would you think this appropriate?


11-16years maybe?



Having read through it Pab, I agree with Scratch. 11-16 year olds.
