Difficult to rate this book. The letters were very witty, and I found it enjoyable reading both Einstein's replies, and the original letters the children wrote. The only let down of the book is that it contained three separate accounts of the professor's life, all detailing the same events, which took up nearly half the book. I was not particularly interested in the first place, but to find that I had to repeat his whole history again, from a different academic perspective but which managed to include all the same information was nothing short of disappointing. The timeline was equally dull.

That being said, the book was very entertaining once the biographical stage was over, and I very much enjoyed reading his letters.
