My 9 year old was in tears

My 4th grader read the first book and loved it. However, when he got to the 4th he got so upset by the sad parts that he was despondent for days and ended up throwing the books under the house. No book has ever affected him remotely like this. If you read the kid reviews you will see some more details on why this book is not good for sensitive children. I wish I had known that.
