This is a story about a boy in Japan who goes to school. From there, I'm not sure where the message is suppose to go. Is it that he eventually has friends? Or that he's awarded at school for attendance? Was he mentally challenged?

Because it seems like he could have tried to play with the children and not stared at the ceiling for those six years at school and tried to learn something - if he wasn't mentally challenged. If he was, than I get the story and it's a nice one.

Ages: 4 - 8

Cleanliness: a boy gets called "stupid and slowpoke." There is a picture of a child's behind.

**Like my reviews? I also have hundreds of detailed reports that I offer too. These reports give a complete break-down of everything in the book, so you'll know just how clean it is or isn't. I also have Clean Guides (downloadable PDFs) which enable you to clean up your book before reading it! Visit my website: The Book Radar.
