Good lesson poorly presented
This book came to our house courtesy one of our book clubs. I immediately recognized it as one I'd had as a child, but just as quickly had a sense that I'd not enjoyed it. Upon flipping through the pages, I remembered why. The simple fact is that most of this book's characters are in abject terror for most of this book. Some are even afraid for their lives, and in fact the word 'kill' is used. While in the end the book teaches a nice lesson about jumping to conclusions and overreacting, there must be a thousand more comforting ways to deliver that lesson. I'm not an extremely protective parent, but this is not one I care to share with my kids.
