This is FIRST on my list of required reading for my kids- I will have my 12 yr old read this aloud to my 6 yr old, and have my 9, 10 yr olds read this to themselves. My plan is to expose them to many different types of books, hoping that they will discover that they may like something they never thought possible.... like I did with Hunger Games.
There is a teensy bit of motivation to finishing this book---
I found THIS awesome post from Imagination Soup! I think this will be a hit with all the little peanuts! Let us know if you decide to read this as a family- may be we can concoct together!
