Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany | 2/20/2014

    " Clever story about five brothers who save each other from an unwarranted death setence using their special talents (iron neck, extend-o legs, holding your breath indefinitely). Love it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 2/13/2014

    " I thought this was a great book, but my kids didn't get quite as enthused. I think the lack of colorful illustrations and long wording did not appeal to them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 1/31/2014

    " Charming story about 5 identical brothers with unique talents who help each-other out. The illustrations are simple but humorous. I really like the pictures of the brother who can hold the sea in his mouth. I also like that the village tries to smother one brother in an oven filled with whipped cream. Who does that? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Francie | 1/28/2014

    " This is a picture book from my childhood that I remember reading over and over but don't really remember the details of now. Its just a pleasant childhood vague memory ... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Serge Pierro | 12/31/2013

    " A childhood classic. The brother who swallowed the sea still remains in my mind after all of these years. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Sammis | 12/28/2013

    " This book creeped me out as a child but my son loves it. The rating reflects his enthusiasm for it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candace | 12/22/2013

    " This was one of my favorite books as a child. I enjoy it because the brothers out smart the village because for some reason nobody knows there is five of them. They each have their own power or talent that allows them to drink the see, iron neck, hold breath forever, and couldn't burn, they are like modern day super hero's. I think the book is teaching that if you make a promise to someone you should stay true to that promise because you never know what can happen if you don't. Also that a family always as each others back no matter what. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janel | 12/21/2013

    " My first grade teacher read this aloud to the class many moons ago. I was riveted then. Maybe I liked it even more since I am an identical twin. Now if only we each had a super power that could prevent us getting killed.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vivian | 12/17/2013

    " This time-tested favorite is as much a lesson in keeping promises as it is of using one's wits. Use exagerated dramatic actions to spice up the story telling even more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Adam | 10/1/2013

    " My favorite first book I could read. Week after week I made my mom take me to the library to check it out and recheck it out. At some point you would think she would have tired of taking me and just bought the damn thing. You won't find it on many bookshelves anymore because it's just not PC. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 9/16/2013

    " I remember when I was really young and my grandpa reading this book to me. It's one of his favorite children stories and has become one of my favorites! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Reilly | 8/25/2013

    " Banned for violence? This is a clever tale in which five (in my opinion) mischievous Chinese brothers work together to elude the execution of one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 7/26/2013

    " Most people who have read this book, I think, have been profoundly disturbed by at least one of the brothers. For me it was the sea-swallower. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ledawn | 4/7/2013

    " Great folk tale...older kids go nuts when I read this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Malbadeen | 7/27/2012

    " More Harsh relatities from that golden age of "I told you so" literature. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yadira | 12/14/2011

    " This book tells the story of a boy who did not listen and the five brothers had to figure out different ways to solve their problem. This book can be used to teach a lesson about being a good listener and obeying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynnell Donnelly | 12/7/2011

    " This is another book I remember from childhood....I remember the teacher reading it to us. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 4/15/2011

    " Identical quintuplets (5) have different gifts and talents that end up saving their brother's life. Fun folktale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 7/29/2010

    " A friend gave me this book when I had my first baby and now we find ourselves randomly quoting this book. Especially the lines, "You must obey me promptly" and "it is only fair." It's one of my husbands favorite bedtime stories to read to our kids. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca | 5/30/2010

    " Absolutely one of my favorite books as a kid. I took it out from the library over and over again. When I was a teenager and my brother was 4 or 5, I started taking it out again to read to him. An entertaining story of 5 brothers and their special abilities, and how they used them to help each other. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mika Jay | 12/6/2009

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 9/2/2008

    " I read this book for the first time at Eve's house. It is a very cute story and super fun. I miss Eve :( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Owen | 6/8/2008

    " probably not PC, but i have fond memories of this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeffiner Singleton | 3/22/2008

    " My son is still a bit young for this I think (hmmm, I'll have to see)... but I adored it growing up! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alisa Raymond | 1/14/2007
