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.

    A Wry Look at Life - This modern fable is fun for adults and kids alike

    I have read this to my 5th and 6th grade classes. It provided many fruitful discussions on personal responsibility in life and for the importance of thinking for oneself. The main character, Bubber, makes observations that allow kids the chance for self-introspection. While it is not scientifically correct that lemmings run off cliffs to their deaths, it nevertheless serves the purpose of the story. Themes I have covered with this story: importance of independent thought, "cool" isn't always "cool" (popularity does not make right), don't take the easy way out, be ready for change, is it "okay" just because everyone else is doing it? and how can cynicism affect our attitude. -- I would recommend this book in any classroom or home if you want to encourage dialogue. Read the book and decide if there is a character with whom you identify...

    Making a Big Decision

    It's about a lemming making a big decision. His name is Bubber. This lemming doesn't know what to do. The book is really worth reading. The author is an actor whose name is Alan Arkin. Once he came to our school.

    THE LEMMING REVIEW

    I think that this book was sad/exiting.The reason why I think that is because it is amazing that a movie star wrote this book. A nother reason why I liked this book is because Crow tried to help Bubber in the best way he could. One of my favorite characters is the old and loony lemming. The sad part is when the old loonie lemming gets pushed off the Moorefield cliffs by the hypnotized lemmings. Bubber turns out doing the right thing at the end. My advise, read this book.

    A Praise for The Lemming Condition

    The LEMMING CONDITION is a book full of adventure, suspense and fun. Bubber a young lemming is stuck in a dilemma. All of his fellow lemmings are traveling west to Moorfield cliffs and jumping into the water while they search for food. Everybody thinks that traveling west is a good thing but something inside of Bubber is telling him not to go. The unsure Bubber with help of his friends Crow and Arnold and a looney old lemming. searches for answers about this 'going west' business. Bubber does not succeed but finds that he is different from the other lemmings. Bubber is faced with an important decision: to go along with the crowd or to do what thinks is best. I like this book because it discusses a matter that many people face, to go along with the crowd or to be yourself. The LEMMING CONDITION is a book that shouldn't be missed by any animal lovers. Even though this book was written for children, it is also would be a delight for adults.
