This is a wonderful book to read aloud! The only problem I had with the story was the setting - no matter what the author wrote I kept seeing it set in New York City. Then the movie came out and I was totally vindicated! The first of a looonnnnggg series of books! Children form attachments and obcessions easily, so if it is for great writing I say BRING IT ON!
I read this book in 5th or 6th grade shortly after I read the Bridge to Terabithia. After I read this book I went out and rented the movie. Although the movie doesn't do it justice. The book is a lot better than the movie. Great story, definitely worth a read.
