I loved it! I had this book sitting on my TBR list for ages and finally picked it up because a bookclub was about to read it. I didn’t make the deadline or the bookclub meeting, but I still felt it was worth reading.
There were so many funny lines in it. I found myself laughing out loud so many times. I don’t mean to say that it was a fluffy comedic book, because it did have a lot of touching moments in it.
This is a cute, very basic, scientific book for children. This book is about weather and the descriptions are simplified for a child. It gives enough information to satisfy basic curiosity, but leaves enough out to allow a child to do more research elsewhere.
I loved this book! I knew that Mrs. Christie had disappeared for 11 days in 1926, and that we still don’t know what happened at that time. I knew it was speculative fiction, but I wasn’t expecting it to read so realistically.
Another thing I loved… and I am repeating LOVED… is that there were discussion questions at the end, which makes this perfect for a book club discussion.
Wonderful work, Ms. Benedict! I’ve enjoyed your other books, and I look forward to reading more of them in the future.
I picked this up for classics bookclub. I had been told that it was funny in a satirical way. I didn’t find it funny, though. There were a lot of topics that made me uncomfortable. I think, though, that it was satire, but it didn’t age well.
I look at this as a book that I’ve read, but don’t have to ever read again. It really didn’t stand the test of time.
This is a cute bedtime story that goes through many of the members of the town and what they do during the day. It takes all kinds to run a community, and the book shows great illustrations and tells good descriptions of the jobs that need to be done.
Beautiful illustrations go with a beautiful story.
As the mother kangaroo is looking for her joey, it kind of reminded me of myself looking for my keys that are in my hand or for my cell phone while I’m talking on it. A child wouldn’t understand that, but the person reading to the child would.
This is a cute bedtime story that would be enjoyed by the reader and the child.
I wasn’t thrilled about the story and plot of this story, but the illustrations are wonderful.
I kept thinking that the snail, since he was at a picnic, would end up being part of the meal instead of eating it. It caused a little stress for me, especially since part of the illustration including the snail slime across the table. Ew.
