As with the last book I read (actually short story), this book was too simplistic. Again, I understand it is for children, but I also agree with the reviewer who thought it would have to be read to younger children, and it is too simple for someone old enough to read it for himself.
While the story has a happy ending it just wasn't worth the journey to get there. Yes, I am glad things worked out well for Bailey, but it was too far fetched. Everything had to fall in place just right for the Great Escape to actually have worked. Not very realistic.
And, yes, I know this is fiction, but it still has to be believable to work. It wasn't (believable), and it didn't (work). Still, if you want to read it, it DOES have a happy ending, and you will want to see things work out for Bailey and his family. Good news is that it won't take very long to read.
---I felt this story was good.
---Realistic at certain points, but then complete fantasy such as the helpful female shelter owner and the young man who wants to adopt Bailey end up getting married. I haven't laughed that hard in a while. Plus of course, Bailey's brain and his thoughts are human-like.
---This would be a good read for a kid if you read it to them and stretched it out a few days OR if they were in fifth grade and you assigned it for a specific reason pertaining to story elements.
---Price is great.
---No pictures, only text at about a fourth or fifth grade reading level, which I wasn't expecting because it is only eleven pages. But it is like reading 10 pages of someone's story that they typed up. At least it seemed like that on the Kindle on my PC as I read it to my son. Therefore, my son did not read it, so I had to read it quite swiftly so it didn't seem to go on forever because it was for a specific assignment for that day. If I let him read it, it would have taken him a week--and that is with him being a very good reader. I think I was expecting about 25 words or less on a page.
---I think someone who read this story cried. I don't think it was that deep.
---But it definitely would have been at least four stars if it had some illustrations. Five stars if the text was broken up.
---The cover photo suggests that this is a book for younger, elementary children who could possibly enjoy it. Unfortunately, not without the help of an adult.
