Anything that captures my child's attention so fully gets five stars!
My son reads all the time and it's hard to keep up with him. But when this book came in the mail, I handed it to him and didn't hear from him till dinner. He's eight and was reading at the table (a no-no in our house) so I told him to put it away until after. That's when he informed me that was his second time through and he was desperate for the second book! he read it one more time during his reading time before bed and has continued to return to it between other books. The next day he brought it to school. I hope some of his friend's parents buy it. It's so worth it and I'll be keeping an eye out for book 2!
