She read it to my daughter’s at an early age and it soon became their all-time favorite book growing up. Since they all have never stopped talking about this book all of these years I decided to buy them all a copy of the book for their libraries.
The thing to watch was how jubilant they were to get the book and how they immediately all read it together again like they were working on some type of college thesis.
I would recommend you read the book it is great for children and adults also. I have also now read the book and it is great!
If you want to go educational get out the maps and locate the 2 places that are mentioned in the story -- France & Africa. A sense of right & wrong alongside good character always strikes a chord with parents so Crictor is right on there. Whether an adult is reading aloud or an elementary student is reading independently, this book is sure to please.
All things considered, I just like it. :-)
Note: I can't recall which language has which, but the drawing of an octopus in one of the books has only 7 tentacles, whereas the drawing in the other book has 8 tentacles.
This is a must for children from 3 to 93. If there were 10 stars, I would give it 10.
