it was ok
bookshelves: f-picture
Read in May, 2011

Parts of the book were really great. But it didn't have a really great feel overall. Maybe it is because today's kids don't call strict teachers "dragons" anymore, so the twist here was lost on my kids. Maybe it is because we've never run into someone who is too strict with their books, so taking it to an extreme was only weird, not funny or clever. There were a lot of places where the kids and I were confused as to the character's motivations. For example, my preschooler kept saying, "But WHY did the teachers do ..." and I didn't really know how to answer.
