This is a perfect story for leisure reading or getting children to explore a more adventurous side or exploration. I personally would use this in one of my classes to lead up to a class treasure hunt. ”Jessica wrote this review Sunday, April 14, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I really enjoyed reading through this. It's a great adventure tale, and it has been deemed a classic for good reason.
A lot of my reading was colored by the number of times I've seen various film adaptations of the story, and I must say I was impressed that no film version I have ever seen accurately represents the entire story. One will get these things right, another will get those things right, and all of them will miss out on this tidbit, or that one. But I liked the book a great deal.
It doesn't get five stars for... some reason or another. I don't quite remember. My brain is a little frazzled right now, for personal reasons; perhaps I will amend this review later if I think of more details.”
