    "Wonderful!"

    I had to read this book for my Children's Literature class, and I have to say...it was wonderful. Well written and well read, it was a joy to read and I am looking foward to the sequel.

    "a little boring"

    This book was a little slow, I don't think it would hold older kids interest for very long. It has some sad things happen though that might bother younger kids. There just wasn't much of a story for me. I wanted to like it but didn't.
