There IS violence in this book

I'm writing this review to let all parents and kids know that there is violence against children in this book -- Opal is hit by the "mama" woman who is supposed to be taking care of her. She also forces her to stay under a bed. I'd like the reviewers at Common Sense Media to change the Violence rating to a higher amount. It's unkind for such young children to be exposed to the idea of an adult striking a child.

This title has:

Too much violence
