Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This story is a good jumping-off point for chapter book readers who want to expand into full-length novels. It is broken down into short chapters that are full of adventure…The underlying lesson about learning to appreciate what you have—and being careful what you wish for—is good discussion fodder for this age group.” School Library Journal
