Riveting Read Aloud Adventure!

This has been a gripping adventure for my two boys (8 and 10). They beg for more. I will say, there are some scary parts and I skip over or tone down some of the scary/violent battle scenes (one rabbit is called an assassin, there is a scene of a rabbit at knife point, etc). I'm not big into violence for my kids, but the redeeming aspects of friendship, strong female roles, and later in the series discussions of race and being true to yourself make it a quality family read. We have had many conversations branch off of happenings in the book and I feel it has been a wonderful adventure to partake on as a family. We have had to say several times when the main character was in peril- it MUST come out ok because we know there is a sequel...

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
