This is a kind of good book. It wasn't outstanding like some books I've read. If I had to pick a book this wouldn't be my first choice at all. I would advise that kids read this book.
This book is really ok, but I think that maybe it could have been better. I think this book could be reccommended to little kids like my brother and sister. I don't like this book that much.
