So we are very excited today for this review. We were given this book by Sourcebooks to review so Samantha and I sat down and started reading it as soon as we got it. We were very engrossed in this book till we made it to the last page.
So let's get to our opinions shall we? Below you will find Ali's Review and Samantha's review.
So, I was really excited to read this book with my daughter and it didn't disappoint. It was a great time reading this great chapter book with her. It introduced her to chapter stories and it was an exciting time. I watched her face as we read it together and she seemed to really love the story and the pictures on the pages made her face light up.
I really enjoyed the plot, it was very different and surprising. Where I thought it was going, well let's just say it went in the total opposite way, but not in a bad way. The author did a great job making this story perfect for the age group it was intended for and even I enjoyed reading it.
The characters in this story were great and I loved watching them grow throughout the story. I will say that some things I had to explain to Samantha, but that's normal for a first chapter story reading.
I would gladly read this book all over again with her.
I liked all the pictures and the story. I want to read it again. I love reading with my mommy and it was fun reading this book. I liked the time travel. Great book.
Thanks so much Sourcebooks and Marissa Moss for a chance to read this together and to review it together. We loved it!
