To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I LOVE this author and as far as we've read the story is very good. However, the quality of the book itself is TERRIBLE. My daughter opened it just after it arrived and the very first time she opened it the pages split off the spine of the book as though the book was very old and had been exposed to excessive sun or heat or something. Although I'm sure we will enjoy the rest of the story, I'll probably have to throw the book away when done instead of passing it on to the other kids as the pages are falling out. Disappointed.
