Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 2/11/2014

    " I read this on vacation after Taylor had finished it and I really enjoyed it. A fun novel of an island of spinster aunts that take care of some fantastic creatures and are desperate to find someone to continue their legacy. I loved the way the author wrote the book, with unexpected things happening (and being said) throughout the story. It reminded me of the Ronald Dahl books I loved growing up. Very fun, and very funny. I would reccommend it for probably 4th or 5th grade on up. "

    " I remember trying to read this when I was younger and being unable to finish it because of such a strong sense of secondhand embarrassment. I've finally went and finished it and I must say it's a cute little book. "

    " it wasn't the best book in the world, but it was a read. I don't think I'd ever pick it up again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellen | 1/16/2014

    " Just a stinkin' cute little story. The only flaw was that I had hoped for some redemption for poor Lambert. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet Sung | 1/6/2014

    " My students liked this one more than Platform 13. A very creative author! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 12/22/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lavendersbluegreen | 12/18/2013

    " Such a fabulous writer for kids and families! I really enjoy the tales she tells and appreciate the moral side of each tale. If you have not read her you should. I do not hesitate to give her books as gifts to my young relatives and godchildren. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam Buie | 11/25/2013

    " a bit different but interesting, helped Kayleigh do a project on it.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theadora | 11/14/2013

    " Child kidnapping and slave work has never been so fantastic. Their island was lovely and all of the events were too. Ending was sweet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 10/29/2013

    " Plot doesn't move at a consistent pace as it does in other Ibbotson books. And it gets a little preachy about the environment. But there is morecharacter development than in other Ibbotson books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ami | 10/11/2013

    " A fun-enough bit of juvenile literature. Not a terribly gripping story; I think I only finished it because it fit a niche of reading that I was looking for at the time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Molly | 10/11/2013

    " Very good fantasy. "

    " This book is so imaginative! All the animals on the island were really creative! The plot was well-thought through, and you couldn't really guess what was coming at the end. I liked it! "

    " This will be one of the books used in our 5th grade child/parent book discussion this summer. I think the kids will like it, but I just hope the handful of curse words and visit to a nudist colony don't freak out the parents too much! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ginny Churchill | 4/14/2013

    " What sort of island is this? Not the kind you would see normally!!! Mermaids, Gigantic white worms, and now kids? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsa | 4/17/2012

    " I think this is a delightfully fun book, a fantasy world in which children escape from school and fighting parents and ridiculous sensibilities, to a magical island where they still have to mind their manners, but are also introduced to the healing powers of nature and a good day's hard work. "

    " really good, used to be a favorite of mine. "
