Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on GoodReads or Amazon?
I came to this book with a relatively open mind, but I must say, this book wastes ink–literally. The pages are all framed with black, and at the end of each chapter, there is a blank, black page. The book is unnecessarily huge because of this. Environmental activists everywhere must hate this book.
So I ended up reading this in a half-hour. It’s a short story, and you don’t come to care for the characters, who continuously steal and lie to each other. Yuck. It’s like the second “Pirates of the Caribbean” all over again, except in Paris. With children.
