I loved this book. Geez, if you think this book is inappropriate, you should see some other books out there. Again, my favorite book. My family has read it together tons of times!

It was a good book!

It is a good book to do a school report on for 5th or 6th graders.

Smart kids, but not smart-alecks

Absolutely wonderful story by the inimitable Konigsburg. The relationship between practical Claudia and parsimonious Jamie is affectionate yet realistic: they insult each other yet appreciate each others' strengths, and it takes both of them to solve the mystery at the heart of their quest. Kongisburg had a gift for presenting intelligent, likable children with distinct voices and personalities: also see "The B'nai Bagels", and "Jennifer Hecate, Macbeth William MCkinley and Me Elizabeth".
