I seen the movie of this years ago when I was a kid and thought I'd finally read the book, I am so glad that I did! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and it took me right back to when I was a kid!

All of the stories in this book are awesome and I loved the way it was written. I love the character Horror :)

I recommend this book to people of all ages. It makes me want to watch the movie again! 5 stars from me!

El libro es calcado a la peli (igual tiene que ver que es un caso en los que hacen una versión novelada de una película) pero está entretenido para los que nos gusta la lectura. Ideal para que lo lean los niños y tal vez se animen a leer más y para los no tan niños nos sirve para tener un reto lector más en nuestra colección: leer los libros que se nombran en El Guardián de las Palabras

Lo leí de pequeña, pero lo tengo en mi colección de libros guardado con mucho cariño. sin duda un libro que leerán mis futuros hijos... recomendado para todos los niños y no tan niños, que disfrutan con la fantasía. Es precioso :)

Cometí el error de ver la película antes de leer el libro. Y es que el libro y la película son idénticos, la película tiene frases literales del libro y por tanto, me aburrí mucho leyéndolo porque sabía todo lo que iba a pasar.

Aun así puedo deciros que es un libro infantil fantástico para niños de unos 8 a 11 años, aunque yo siendo mayor lo leyera por curiosidad. Es muy divertido y me gustó encontrar en él a personajes de otros libros clásicos. Es un libro adecuado para lectores, así sabrás de q

Wow, it sucks! My first script-book adaptation and I'm feeling really disappointed. A lots of "Pum! Pam! Piu!".. Descriptions of the things I saw in the movie when I was a kid and nothing more. Wow. No. Really horrible.

Quick and fun read, even though it reads as a film novelization and it shows sometimes. If it was a real MG it would benefit from some deepening characterization.
But kids enjoy it and read it so quickly it's nice to see them flipping pages!

Read this because of the movie. Enjoyed this, but I felt that the story (including the movie) could really do better.

You could tell that this was taken straight from the movie. I forget what they call these kinds of books..the kids seemed to like it though!
