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.
We really like it! I read this aloud to five children from the age 15 down to 3. No other review, that I read, mentioned the chapter about the ouija board and the section about the visit to a spiritualist meeting/church so I thought I would
This was a delightful book! I am an elementary teacher who was introduced to this author by my ten year old niece. I have now purchased this book several times for friends and family, and have accompanied each gift with a rock. The story is meaningful for anyone who has had a hiccup or two in their life - children and adults alike. I do recommend this book for anyone grade 4 and above. It is a book that boys or girls can read and both can find meaning.
Ich weiß, dass es sich hierbei wohl um ein Kinderbuch handelt und es lässt sich als solches auch gut und schnell lesen für einen Erwachsenen. Aber die Inhalte des Buches sind philosophisch und für Jung und Alt relevant. Ein Buch zum Nachdenken nicht nur über den Sinn des Lebens, sondern auch über die eigenen Werte und über die eigenen "Wölfe" und ihr Futter...
This was a quirky, enjoyable book. Some of the scenarios are a little far fetched. I mean, they could definitely happen, but for them to work out just exactly as they do is a little out there. Honestly though, I have to say that this book is worth overlooking that minor flaw. There is a lot of good to be gotten from this book. The characters are ... interesting and, in most cases, pretty odd. They are fun to read though and, overall, pretty likable. The message is a great one and it’s delivered in a pretty beautiful way. My 13 year old son read this for a book report. He was a little unsure at first, but he ended up really liking it. He kept saying how awkward the main character was. He’s about my son’s age and I thought it was funny to see how he felt about the odd things the main character would do, compared to how I felt. I found them funny and quirky. He, being that age, found them funny, but embarrassing and thought that he was “so weird”. If you’re thinking of reading this, I’d say go for it! It really was a good book. I think it was a great book for a preteen/teen to read too. It’s one that I’m actually a little surprised that I don’t know any teachers where I live that have decided to read it to the class or have it as a required read. It really is a good one. Also, if you’re interested, I really like the audio version. At first I was unsure about the person they have performing the audio, but as the story went on I realized he was pretty perfect.
