One Star Review Guess Who? (#50)

One Star Review Guess Who

Today, on the occasion of the 50th One Star Review Guess Who post, I wanted to take a moment to share the reasons I do this.

1. It’s just funny sometimes.
2. It’s a good reminder to me that readers are not a monolith. While one reader might call a book a classic, another might call it “one of the most disturbing books for young readers ever written.” It’s a reminder to me to read and recommend widely, because no single book is for all readers. And that’s okay.

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon?

I just don’t get it. It’s a stupid mouse. Tell him no. He doesn’t have to get everything he wants.

  1. I have peeked yet. I’m going to guess If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.

  2. Like some of its other one-star reviews. “It’ll poop all over your goddamn house!”
