One Star Review Guess Who? (#2)
Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on GoodReads or Amazon?
I can’t understand how it won the John Newberry Medal. The witches were plastic and seemed to serve little purpose; the bad guy, a concept embodied in a shadow, had no motivation […] and the father, who seems to have no backbone and no sense of decency when it comes to saving his son. I’m not about to recommend it to anyone young or old. Unless it’s too ask that person to help me understand what the big deal is.
