Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Janet Morgan Stoeke
If you didn't get to see the pictures in this first reader, you would miss all the fun. It is a story about moving to a new house, and the boy says all of the things you'd expect to hear. "The kids here have different rules for their games. But I'm getting used to them." The picture shows the boy losing a bout of jousting to an opponent. The message is clear: it's been tough on kids to move since the Dark Ages. The inclusion of a couple of smiling ghosts in the new castle might worry a couple of tenderhearted kids, but most will revel in the off-kilter fun.
