Review this title!
Parent of a 3, 5, and 8 year old Written byDeniseArts June 10, 2014


My five year old can't get enough of this book- and the eldest loves it as well. It's so much better and richer and engaging than the movie, we read a few chapters a night, and are sad to see it about to end. It's really, really good. Hard to believe it's 100 years old.

Not a book for kids, not like the movie at all.

We stopped reading at Chapter five. Horrible they tell how the tin man became the tin man his ax cuts his arms off legs, his head and then his whole body. Yep so I looked through it more and there is a part where bees are sent to sting them to death. So little creatures are sent to stab them to death with spears which doesn't happen so the with beats the creatures. The book is not child appropriate in my opinion.

Too much violence
