I will give a thumbs up. I really liked the metaphor that Kate Dicamillo used to display Rob's feelings (A suitcase that Rob,the main character, kept shut). I would recommend this book to ages 8-12 because I think people around that age would enjoy it the most (even though it is a very short and easy to read book). : )
When I first read Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief, I was glued!!! It is a intense but at the same time humorous. Though the book was amazing with all of its twists and turns, the movie was horribly inaccurate. There was even a Hydra in the movie but not in the book. The whole plot of the story in meddled and tattered with! I recommend the book not the movie.
I was up at night, caught in class, and in a trance while reading this book! I know it is a little old but if I hadn't have read it, I probably would have never have the same love of books that I do now. I would Also totally recommend reading the whole series.
I give it four stars for the story that never gets old! I loved how C.S.Lewis showed so much passion and curiosity in the characters. This story showed a mix of mystery, adventure, and fiction. I loved this book, but sadly, I have not watched the movie.
