New read or re-read? New read.
Would you read it again? Would you recommend it to others? This is another I would recommend reading it out loud to younger children. As I said before, I personally won’t read it again unless I’m reading it out loud to nieces/nephews/children. I still would like to add it to my shelves, and any others in this series for this reason.
Was it easy to read? Very easy to read.
Favorite Character(s): My favorite character this time around was, oddly enough, Bunnymund, mainly for his love of chocolate. Truly, he is one very sensible bunny.
Is there anything about it that you did not like? I am used to more in-depth types of writing, and this book is geared towards children ages 7-9. I can’t always expect the styles that I’m used to.
Is there anything else you would like to add? This was the second of the two library books I found that was not a Diana Wynne Jones book. I wanted to get these two done as quickly as possible (since I knew they’d be easy reads in the first place) before gearing up for some longer reads.
