Community Reviews


I love Ursula K. LeGuin so I reserved this book from another library without realizing it's appropriate reading for a 2nd grader. It's a really cute book and I enjoyed it despite being more than three times the target age.

Perfect for Young Readers

This is a wonderful book for beginning chapter readers who like cats and fantasy - if your child likes "The Rainbow Fairies", check this out. I only wish there were more than four books in this series.
