Once again, a great book that I clearly remember reading in the fourth grade as a class and I was completely engulfed in each chapter trying to figure out what was going to happen next. This is a great read for any teacher looking for that book of an adventure to really keep students engaged in what is happening in the story. All you need to know is there is magic, adventure, and a lesson in what looks great on the surface, isn’t always that great. This would be a great novel to use during guided reading as well. Also to teach a lesson on the story elements of setting, problem, solution, theme, etc.
