This book was so fun to read. It is meant for yound girls. However, I read it to my 7 year old son in an backwoods accent. It was so fun to read. It conveys a beautiful message of love and forgiveness.

I read this in sixth grade an it is still one of my favorite books. It's filled with fantasy and adventure as well as humor.

Perfectly well-written, just not my cup of tea. Tall-tale-ish.
a truly bizarre experience.
