Kids say (2):

The darkly foreboding, mystical atmosphere is set up by the narrator, Coshmoo, who is dead. His spirit whispers the story on the wind in the branches of an ash tree. His tale is filled with portents and metaphorical visions, and tit's old in lyrical language. Pervaded by a sense of urgency and impending disaster, as the age-old cycle of revenge and hatred begins to replay along the Susquehanna River, this compelling novel flows ever faster to its inevitable, tragic conclusion.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
