Very odd book. It was a read aloud in my 4th grade class back in 1968 (Mrs. Stockbridge probably picked it because it won the Newberry Award), but after an exciting start, the class soon got bored with it, and - HORRORS! - she and the class decided we should stop reading it. When I protested and said that I thought it was interesting, she said the most humiliating thing a teacher ever said to me - "You would!" Well, she still was one of my favorite teachers.
