I liked this book because it is a chapter book. I want everyone to read this book. I give this book five stars because it is so good.
The Littles are tiny people with tails. They live in the walls of the home of the Biggs. The Littles use odds and ends that the Biggs no longer need to build an elevator, eat etc.
In this story the Biggs go on vacation and the Littles have new big people living in the home. For three weeks the Newcombs don't take out the garbage and mice come. There is excitement and bravery.
This is an adorable book. We are buying more.
written by John Peterson,the natural colour and the beautiful picture of the cover attract me to choose this book.
The story was said about some tiny people who went exploring to find an old man called Grandpa Little.He was a smart man who was the first little to understand electricity and had made the trip to explore the place,but unfortunately he is unsuccessful and lost his way.
After I read it,I think the most interesting part was the part about the Littles family found Grandpa Little.they tries to solve all theproblems when they went exploring.
I think the main character Tom and Lucy were the cleverest and bravest children in the family.They told their parents immediately when they discovered the secret room and they discuss with them.It shows that they were cooperative with the family members.Also,when UncleNick said that he needed two volunteers to go along,Tom answered that he could go very quickly.he didn¡¦t mind to lose his life tio find Grandpa Little.And Lucy,she was curious about everything and had her own decisions.Although she was very little,she provided a lot of opinions about the plan to find Grandpa Little.It shows that she was a wise girl and did all the things sensibly.
I really enjoy this book because of two reasons.First of all,I think the story is very interesting,it made me easily to put in it.Also,it is very meaningful,because it can tell us a lot of things about our life.I hope I can make myself clever,brave,confidentand mature like Tom and Lucy.I think this book is suitable for everyone,so I think you shouldn¡¦t miss it!
This book lends itself to so many extensions for learning and enjoyment both at home and at school- from comprehension, vocabulary, extend-the-story, artwork- I love looking at the artwork of the images that the story conjures up at both home and school. This is a story with few illustrations and one that I love to see the children draw is the tin can elevator- there isn't an illustration of this in the book (thank goodness) and looking at what the children draw always amazes me.
If you have a school-age child instead of a picture book, try a chapter book such as this one for nightly reading. It'll be a great adventure and foster a love for chapter books!

cute, but short. I got this at the 1 cent price, but it's so short it wasn't really worth the 3.99 in shipping.Published 4 months ago by Naomi A.
