The Sign of the Fiddler Crab is an insightful story which shows what could happen if we allow our educational system to be ruled by politicians. Too many teachers today are more concerned about tenure and complying with government controlled testing. They do not allow children to use their imaginations. Children are not allowed to think. Its "memorize this". Our system is reversing to the rote school way of learning. Every parent should read this story. I have recommmended it to all my family with young children. James Hampton is brilliant.
Please hire a proofreader. Story was interesting but Mr. Waggoner does not use puncutation properly. Tried to read some other titles, but encountered the same problems. Ideas are great, but I find the errors annoying.
This book is great. Truly enjoyable. I kept hoping that Hannah and Seth would have a life together. A beautiful story. True love. I read it in one evening because I could not stop. Looking forward to more stories by this author.
