I personally love this book.

Blair YES. A thousand times yes!

Jessica I had to laugh

Rebecca tedder Rebecca tedder I too was surprised at the 4 and 5 star reviews. I found I got bored of this by page 30 something, soldiered on but it really wasnt anything that got me interested. If anything I found the way it written highly irritating. I gave up by page 70 unfulfilled with what it offered. The waste of pages with 1 line and flicking through to see many pictures made me feel I should have given it to my toddler instead. Certainly NOT a book I would recommend.

Claudette Great header!!!

Robin I'm enjoying the book far. Your review is quite precocious. It remains to be seen if I agree with you once I've finished reading.

Robin Edman I don't agree, but I understand, and spat a little when I read your review. Thanks!
