I thought this was a nice children's book that looked at some interesting conflicts handled them well. I felt like it skimmed over a lot of things quickly, but since it is a children's book, that's forgivable. I thought it was worth reading.
This was a last-minute pick for a local book group I'm in charge of. I think I'm going to start choosing more of the books for this group myself. We've read some interesting books, but we've also read a lot of children's and teen fiction, and I'd rather not go in that direction anymore.
