Nice read aloud book
Reviewed in the United States on October 26, 2013
I bought this book as a read aloud for my fifth grade class, it sounded interesting, and it was short, so it wouldn't take as long to read to them as a regular novel. I wasn't expecting a whole lot, but my kids loved it, and are excitedly waiting to hear the next installment. It's an easy read aloud, and the chapters are short enough that one can be read in about ten minutes. I always made sure to make each chapter ending sound like a cliff hanger, and it kept them asking for the next chapter. Right before the winter holidays I am going to take a morning and we are going to make the recipes that came with the books. They will love that.
