I was very pleased with this one. I thought it started a little slow, but before too long, I was drawn in, and very interested in the story and the characters.  I really don’t have a whole lot to say abut it, though. I am amazed that it came out in the 50’s. It seems like it was ahead of it’s time.

I actually had to go an outside library and check this one out because a student came and took it right before I was going to read it. It says a lot that a book of its size published in 1958 is still getting read by elementary students in 2015.

I give it four out of five Newbery Pies.
