it was ok
Read in April, 2012

I love books, I truly do, but I can't imagine a child enjoying this one. It reads like an older adult's nostalgic view of classic books. And really, "a hardworking library volunteer?!?" I do not dispute that library volunteers work very, very hard, but using that clunky language in a children's book? So the volunteers are the ones to blame for the book being mislaid? Not a favorite.
