    " It's not as good Tale of Desperaux or Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, but it's not as bad as Winn-Dixie. It's too bad that DiCamillo is a hit-and-miss writer, since the books that I liked are SO SO SO good. "

    " I love reading children's books and books like this are why. I loved the sweet story and thought the illustrations were beautiful. I would recommend this to any child or adult. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 5/20/2011

    " It was a fun quick fantasy about an orphan boy who finds his place in the world and his long lost little sister. I would recommend it to 3rd - 6th grade boy or girl. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 5/18/2011

    " A story of forgiveness and caring for others! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marla | 5/14/2011

    " I love children's books and I am normally easily pleased by them but this book was way too juvenile and predictable for children who would be of the age to read this. (This is not a picture book.) I would not recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 5/7/2011

    " A fanciful story written in lyrical style my one of my favorite childrens book authors. The story is pretty far-fetched but the language is imaginative and fun, conjuring up meaning well beyond the margins of the whimsical plot. "

    " Wonderful story and beautiful pictures. Excellent escape for any age reader. "

    " I liked this book, but I didn't like all of how it was written. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica | 4/25/2011

    " This was a really good book. It was written brilliantly. It was a touching story. "

    " ok This author just keeps getting better and better. The messages in the book are for all of us. The writing is exquisite. I couldn't put it down and cried on the bus as I was finishing it.
    More Kate DiCamillo please! "
