I have mixed feelings and substantial reservations about putting this book in a classroom library.

The author labels this a fictionalized book and I appreciate that information is included in the notes. It is a charming story but several important parts are changed from fact to fiction or very suspect. Oddly enough, the truth was so interesting that I feel sad the author felt the need to embellish and remove it from non-fiction.

It misled some of the reviewers who label it non-fiction and would mislead children as well.
