One Star Review Guess Who

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? Stealing is ok—-I think not! This is NOT a book to be shared with anyone other than the trash!

One Star Review Guess Who

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? I read this a while ago and found this not that interesting. I found it creepy, actually.

One Star Review Guess Who

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? I just want to say that I think [Title] is one of the most disturbing books for young readers ever written. I remember, as a child, reading the first chapter over and over again, trying to figure out how a woman […]

One Star Review Guess Who

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? Where do I even begin? How about the cover? The cover makes it look like it’s some sort of book about potty training or something. Awful choice. Click here for the answer. One Star Review Guess Who (#1) One […]

One Star Review Guess Who

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? As I am writing this review a song plays faintly in my mind: Sweet dreams are made of these Who am I to disagree?

One Star Review Guess Who? (#28)

One Star Review Guess Who

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? Very few books failed to engage me, but I loathed this one with a purple passion. The main character, a young boy who writes letters to an author without success (?), has such an aggravating, whiny personality that I […]

One Star Review Guess Who

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? I really don’t understand this book.

One Star Review Guess Who? (#26)

One Star Review Guess Who

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? Instead of listening to my own children, who I love, fight with each other, I got to hear whiny, screechy-voiced [character] whine, sullen, put-upon [character] whine, and both of their parents whine. It felt like watching Supernanny. Click here […]

One Star Review Guess Who

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? I don’t understand why this book is a classic or well-liked. It’s actually about a horrible boy, who therefore has a horrible day. He’s a brat. I don’t think its a good book for kids to read and I […]

One Star Review Guess Who? (#24)

One Star Review Guess Who

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? My trouble with the book is that it has no story, and no drive. Rather, each chapter centers on some Holiday during the year. And with each Holiday, we get another droll incident about something mildly shocking done by […]

One Star Review Guess Who? (#23)

One Star Review Guess Who

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? This is easy, meaningless, chime-rhyming nonsense — and not even nonsense with interesting language or ideas, like Lewis Carrol or (some of) Edward Lear. No, this is nursery rhymes but without the moral message. The wan, sugary pop-songs of […]
