Different author. I kept thinking that I should have felt some kind of emotional connection to this story, but I never did. It's a shame. The actual story about Camila has so much potential with the right author. There were a lot of holes in the story--pieces that I was surprised the author had just left out.
Three Cups of Tea. Both good stories with bad authors. Three Cups of Tea ended up being full of falsehoods. This one has been accused of the same thing.
Have a book club discussion about the book.
Emotionally devoid. Shame on this journalist for not being able to produce a better book.
My 5 year old listened to this book with me over two days. We both enjoyed it. I was amazed at Anne Hathaway's versatility in her narration. Only 1 or 2 of her voices were quite annoying. The rest were marvelous. My five year old was completely captivated and listened to this book straight over many hours.
The ending (after the hot air balloon takes off with the wizard) is so different from the movie. My five-year old says, "I love the part where the wall is made out of china and the people are made from china.
Dorothy and the Tin Man were our favorites.
Yes, but we couldn't finish it; we had a life to live along the way!
Highly recommend for kids. What a treat that it was free!
