    Of the three books Robert C. Tabb has written this one was my favorite. It was one which kept me moving along in the story. I could relate to some of the dilemmas of life the characters faced. The resolutions were not what I expected which made the story even more enjoyable. It was interesting how the characters were not developed in one chapter but over the course of the story. I would describe it as fast paced and fun, each chapter left me wondering what the next one would bring. It is a book I would highly recommend.

    I enjoyed this book from the very beginning. The characters are well developed and hard not to fall in love with. I found myself laughing, tearing up, and entertained. This book is the best of Robert's books, Joe and the Ten Wishes and The Rules: Trust No one. I highly recommend this book. I was amazed at how well he captured the minds and actions of the 5th graders. Well written and such a great book!

    The Glass Collectors is clearly written by someone who knows how children’s minds work. Tabb lets us inside the heads and hearts of several characters. He paints one vivid picture after the next. I found myself rooting for Emerson and Wheels (and Walt) from the start. While Joe and the Ten Wishes is my all time favorite, The Glass Collectors is certainly a great addition to Tabb’s collection and definitely worth reading.
