really liked it
bookshelves: middle-grades, mystery

I had never read the original book. However, I did see the movie after it was made. Why? Because several scenes were shot at my favorite museum here in Florida. They used John and Mable Ringlings house C a d' zan as part of the setting I was immediately enthralled with the story. The fact that my first reading of it was through Classic Starts makes me realize how much I missed and how much my students will enjoy it. I liked Pip very much. He was a dreamer and wanted more for himself in a time when people were put into classes and usually didn't get out of their class. He was a commoner, yet he was brought up very respectable. Another great story to put on my shelves.
