Read in September, 2011

Fascinating to see the mixed reviews. I found this absolutely charming on first read and can imagine children loving all the visual references. But I wonder if children will be confused by the story. Will need to share with some students and see. I, for one, loved it.

Hayley I think this is definitely a one to one read, and I think kids will love the pictures and finding some of the 'hidden' references.

Mary Ann It actually worked really well as a whole-class read - 2nd graders really enjoyed it, loving the illustrations and the story. And I think they'll have fun reading it again on their own.
