My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved the illustrations in this book. The book would be perfect to read to a child and enjoy the illustrations. I read it quickly, but I’d enjoy it again.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I thought I’d enjoy this kid’s mystery more than I did. It took forever to get to the mystery and then the mystery got solved too easily. The birthday boy was showered in gifts and wasn’t very nice to the other kids. The “punishment” made the reader understand how the birthday boy got to be such a handful.
This book showed up on the LGBT books for kids list. I didn’t really get into it, since I didn’t understand at first that it was his mother he was talking to, and not his sister. The illustrations were great, though.
I found this book on the LGBT books for kids list. I checked it out of the library, not realizing it was a graphic novel.
I loved the illustrations and the story, which was about doing what you should do, not what everyone else expects of you. The princesses accept each other the way they are, and help others during their adventure.
I didn’t realize that this was written by the same author as The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. I loved that book, too.
I really enjoyed this book! It has become a running joke with my family and friends because I carried it around with me for months. I never disliked it, it was just that the world seemed hell bent on not letting me finish it.
The book was written like a Rolling Stones article. Each person involved got his say. It was a different approach to telling the story, but it worked. I loved it.
This was a cute, humorous book about a family’s trip to the beach, told by a small boy. He has many adventures on the trip. It is written for a child, but the parents will understand some of the humor better than the child. I enjoyed the book, reading it as an adult who survived her children’s childhood.
The illustrations in the book are great! The story left a little to be desired. Why were the mermaids on the subway? How did grandma know where to find them? I am glad that the grandma handled the situation the way she did, but it needed a few things fixed before I could give it a higher rating.
