   Love this book!
I use this book as a novel study for 5th graders and they love it. We are happy, sad, and scared. It is a great book for kids.
   My second purchase of this book... you will love it.
The book was great. A few years ago I read it. My boy had to read it. He was behind in handing it into the teacher and I was always on him about his homework. The teacher didn't have enough books for everyone in the class so he wasn't able to read and do the work. He had to read it himself after I ordered a copy for him. The story of the friendship between the two main characters was very touching. I ordered a copy for my niece. She is playing a game of the books. She decided to read the story after I told her about it. This is for her!
   Great book for all ages
The book is great for all ages. I read this with my 12 year old son for a summer reading project and it is a timeless and ageless classic that gets some great conversations going. The subjects of bulling and friendship are relevant today. Everyone in the book came away with a life lesson to ponder. I received this one a few days ago and it was in great shape.
   Amazing .....
I liked this book very much. I read this book in one weekend for 10 to 13 year olds, because I had to read it in 6th grade.
   Not good
My son is very fond of reading. The boy has a book in his hand. I've never seen him dislike a book. It took him a long time to read. He said it was the worst book he has ever read.
   great underdog story
This is a wonderful story. I bought a copy years ago for my kids and niece. The way the book was handled or shoved into the box makes it look like it was used with a bent cover and the same section of the first 30 or so pages. I'll probably keep this one and order her a new copy.
   Great Story
This book has been read many times by my students. It is a story about friendship and how it can affect you.
   Avoid if you can
My daughter had to read this. She did not like it. My wife didn't like it. It is not recommended if you can avoid it.
   Summer Reading Hit
My daughter liked this book. A good book is what makes a summer reading assignment good. She told me that it sounded like a newer, younger version of the book. I haven't read it yet, but the connection was based on my daughter's description of the book.
