it was amazing
bookshelves: tema-s-books
Recommended for: parents and kids, grade-schoolers
Read in June, 2009

Tema says, "I wish I could give it a 6! I liked it because the cupboard could change people and that the cowboy and the indian, and they all had weird names. It was interesting. I learned that it's not true, and I learned about longhouses."

After that euridite review from Tema, I probably don't need to add anything. But I'll say that it was a very interesting read-aloud; I was just as interested to find out what would happen next as my 6 yr old was! The vocabulary was a stretch for my son, but it was a fast-paced chapter book that has moments of humor and suspense. Probably better for a little bit older child, but it definitely succeeded in holding our attention. I've never had my son demand for me to read quite so often. We'll be starting the next book in the series very soon.
