Not a Follower, a LEADER

THE LEMMING CONDITION book is a funny book to read. This book is also filled with excitement because this lemming named Bubber has to make lots of decisions. If this lemming makes the wrong decision it could risk his life. This lemming has to make a decision that will change his life forever even if he makes the right decision. The moral to this story is to be a leader not a follower. That is why I love this story and why you should buy this book from Alan Arkin, who is also a movie star. I hope you enjoy this great book.

I like the part of the story when Bubber took his bag to go to Moorfeild Cliffs to pick clovers. Another favorite was the lemming that loved the rocks. He was a loonie. The saddest part of the book was the march to the sea and going west. The most interesting part of the story was when he went to uncle floyd's house. Then when Bubber got to uncle floyd's the things that were happening at his house were also happening at uncle floyd's house. Bubber started to wonder why he was different.

    When Lemmings Head West

    I think the book the LEMMING CONDITION is a wonderful book.It starts out in the begining with a lemming (rodent)called Bubber who is always questioning.Although Bubber learns that he doesn't always have to do stuff that just everybody is doing .When Bubber remembers about the great march to sea, his friend Crow asked him whether the Lemmings could swim,or not. Bubber finds out for himself.I think this book will encourage lots of kids to believe in themselves.I recommend this book to teachers,grown-ups and children because it teaches that just because everyone is doing the same thing it doesn't mean you have to do the same exact thing.I'd say that this is probably the only book that I have read in school that teaches kids to be confident,believing,and, questioning.It shows a lot of friendship.I think this book would be outstanding to young readers,enjoy!!!!!

    Okay,but not great

    This is a powerful story of a lemming named Bubber. He is a young lemming who is asking questions about why eveybody is moving west. I thouught the book had an outstanding ending. Allen Arkin had to have put lots of time and effort into this book. He is proving that in this world somewere this could really happen in the real world. I also liked some of his movies that he made. I didn't think that Allen Arkin had to make a sequal to this story. I recomend this book to young readers. I also thought that this book could be a movie. So keep up the good work Allen Arkin. Make another good book like this one!

    Bubber and the Other Lemmings

    I rated this book three stars because I thought it was an okay book. It was exciting at some points and at some points a little dull. Some parts were funny. The book was a happy and sad book. It was a good ending because it leaves you thinking. The book was about a lemming named Bubber that has to make a life risking decision.Bubber has to make a lot of choices at one time.One involves his friend Crow. They get in a fight about minding your own business.Then they were sort of friends again and Crow took Bubber to try out his big experiment. The author is Alan Arkin,and he is a movie star. His son Adam Arkin is a comedian.Alin Arkin used to live in Chappaqua N.Y. Now he lives in Hollywood. Alin Arkin used to visit our school.
