    Cute little book for kids

    I agree with the review done by Dorthy Darrow. The beautiful cover is what drew me to the book. The story itself was " flat" & lacked dimension for me as well. Perhaps this was written for a younger reader in mind ( 10 to 11 year old).

    I enjoy a good book, unfortunately, I can only say I enjoyed the last story in this book. I realize that this is a collection of 5 short stories, however, the other 4 stories did not hold my attention. I feel they were not as well written as the last story. The first 4 stories made me feel as if a high schooler or college student ( bringing writer) had written them. The last story made me feel as thou I was actually a part of the story. This is what a well written author has the ability to do.

    I was REALLY looking forward to reading this book after reading the description of the book & other book reviews. I found that I was NOT able to read this book due to the excessive vulgar language. I found it revolting that this author had the nerve to quote scripture from the Bible ( Exodus 11:1) to open the book and then proceed to use God's, Jesus' & Christ's name repeatedly as curse words. I was SO MAD because I had actually gotten into the story good & then all this UN-NESSACARY vulgar language beings. I tried several times to go back to read this book, but I just can't. This author needs to understand that he is actually taking away from the story by using this type of language. You don't need a "shock factor" like this. If I had the "paper" version of the book, I would have taken a white out pen to all this language & then I could have read the book. Perhaps this author should think about publishing this novel without this vulgar language so "us people" who enjoy a good book for the quality of the story could enjoy it.
