it was amazing
bookshelves: children-ya

I thought this was just a superb book! It's a little more intellectual than the first two, but really lets Max's personality come through and develop as he takes on a much more adult job. As an anthropologist I was particularly impressed with some of his reflections on performance and real-life -- without being at all obviously didactic it conveys some very sophisticated and subtle understandings. As with many good books for young people, the kids are more interesting than the adults, and I'd love to see more of his story, and of Pia!
