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.
There is nothing astonishingly new in this story--an elementary-school student is bothered by bullies, and he goes to a fantastic place to complete a homework assignment--but Ursula Vernon handles it with her characteristic tongue-in-cheek wackiness that makes it a light and enjoyable read for all ages. Her drawings complement the text perfectly and more--rather than being mere illustrations, they carry the story along, comic-book style. Though the story concludes satisfactorily, at the end I found myself wanting more.
Fortunately, more stories are indeed in the works, and I look forward to seeing them. You will too.
