i loved this book. i almost don't think it could win a newbery because most of its wisdom i see going over children's heads - like they're missing the best part. they should rename this book 'how to be happy'.

(this has been chosen as an award or honor winner in several "Mock" 2010 Newbery polls. I'm trying to get a jump on them and see if I can read them before the awards are announced this month.)

Brandy oooo... now I am really excited to read it!


message 2: by Rebecca (new) - added it

Rebecca Kris, that sounds like one I should add to my list! If I ever find time to read for pleasure instead of work again!


Kristine I'm definitely buying it. I think it has been my favorite book of the year so far. (maybe tied with The Help . . . )
