  • It was a really good book, with well drawn illustrations. The book was very easy to relate to. I think kids who read this will also be able to relate to the book as well. Sometimes you hope and expect for your day to go one way, and sometimes one bad thing can happen an goes a totally different way then you expected. This would be a good book for third grade and up.


  • I didn't really enjoy reading this book. I did however, like that it showed that you don't always get want you want, and that's okay. It was a pretty long book for it being a children's book. I would have this in my classroom library available for kids who are more advanced in reading.
