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

One Star Review Guess Who? (#80)

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? It’s from a British author, it promotes witchcraft and sorcery amongst American children.

One Star Review Guess Who? (#77)

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

One Star Review Guess Who? (#73)

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? To be completely honest, I did not enjoy this story. For the children that this book was meant for, it teaches them that it is acceptable to throw a fit if they do not have their favorite toy or […]

One Star Review Guess Who? (#72)

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon? I can summarize this story with these questions and answers coming from the snot-nosed, little children in the novel: “Will we have a mother? […] Will she like me? Will she stay? Yes.” Boring.
