5-0 out of 5 stars I LOVED this book!
I thought that this book was one of the best i have ever read. It is good for all ages. I couldn't put this book down- it got you hooked- and after you were done i wanted to read other books by Shannon Hale. I love the action and romance in Princess Academy. Another great book of her's is Goose Girl.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cute book for it's intended audience and others as well
I plan on purchasing this book some day. I think it will be a fun book for my daughter(s) to read when they're a little older (my oldest girl is three). The book is fun, easy to read and very enjoyable. This book contains everything, action, innocent teenage romance, drama and intrigue.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great book!
This book was awesome! I read it in one day and it was very meaningful. It was also suspenseful, and fun to read. I really enjoyed this book and I'm looking forward to read more of Shannon Hale's books. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Indeed, the "fairest of them all"
Aza ins't just plain; she's plain ugly. In a land where song, grace, and beauty are prized, Aza's large stature (not just in heighth but also breadth) are deemed appalling and overshadow her amazing abilities in singing. Abandoned at the Featherbed Inn as a newborn, she is lovingly raised by her foster family. But their love can't oversome the low self-esteem Aza develops because of how other people treat her. When an unexpected chance to travel to court for a royal wedding comes, Aza is hesitant but goes to help her family. There, she is "befriended" by the new queen, Ivi, who is selfish and self-absorbed. Soon after the wedding, the king is severally injured and Ivi is claimed ruler in his place. Forcing Aza to use her unusual ability to project her voice for her own gains, the queen quickly becomes a dictator that threatens Aza's honor, her tenuous relationship with Prince Ijori (the king's nephew and heir), and the country in general. Can Aza overcome her own lack of self-assurance to save herself and her land?
5-0 out of 5 stars I was her Lark.

5-0 out of 5 stars delightful retelling of Snow White
As a newborn, Aza was left at the Featherbed Inn in the village of Amonta, Ayortha.Though a baby, she was singing, which brought her to the attention of the kind innkeepers Father and Mother, who raise her with love alongside their biological offspring.However, Aza is far from pretty so as to not disturb their customers; she remains hidden when the inn is open for business.

Editorial Review

Elizabeth, a beautiful princess, lives in a castle and wears fancy clothes.Just when she is about to marry Prince Ronald, a dragon smashes her castle, burns her clothes with his fiery breath, and prince-naps her dear Ronald.Undaunted and presumably unclad, she dons a large paper bag and sets off to find the dragon and her cherished prince. Once she's tracked down the rascally reptile, she flatters him into performing all sorts of dragonly stunts that eventually exhaust him, allowing her to rescue Prince Ronald. But what does Prince Not-So-Charming say when he sees her? "You smell like ashes, your hair is all tangled and you are wearing a dirty old paper bag. Come back when you are dressed like a real princess." (At least he has the courtesy not to mention that the princess's crown resembles a dying sea anemone.) In any case, let's just say that Princess Elizabeth and Prince Ronald do not, under any circumstances, live happily ever after. Canadian author Robert Munsch celebrates feisty females everywhere with this popular favorite, and Michael Martchenko's scratchy, comical, pen-and-ink drawings capture the tongue-in-cheek quality of this read-aloud crowd pleaser. (Ages 4 to 8) --Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Fractured Tale
A pretty clever princess outwits a dragon to save a prince.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very small book
This is the tiniest book ever, and I did not realize that before my purchase. I thought I was getting the regular size paperback, not the 2inch by 2 inch copy. Check before you buy...... I was not informed and the listing does not give that information. What a let down.

5-0 out of 5 stars not just for princesses
I read this story to my son, 3.5 years old and avid dragon lover.I received this book as a young girl and loved the book because I believed it asserted the princess' independence.As I now read it to my son, I think it relays a different message, people who love you will do anything for you . . . and you need to appreciate it!My son understood that the princess did what she did for love of the prince and at all costs . . . without me telling him!Great story. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Great story and a fun read, but a few mixed impressions
I am not a purist, but the obvious taking from Harry Potter is a wee annoying - there just didn't seem any reason for it.I don't feel these decisions moved the story forward because of its familiarity, so much as jar the reader out ofthe story - which was a shame.Would have been easy to stay in her own world, and we, the reader, would have too.Poor writerly decisions, in my opinion.
5-0 out of 5 stars Just as Magical as the Harry Potter series!
I found this book on sale at Waldenbooks and after reading the first chapter I was hooked! It is one of the best books I have read and is suitable for all ages. Read it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Magikal...
Magyk is a great beginning to an even better series.Full of Action and adventure, this book will lure readers of any age. Watch out Harry Potter! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Gregor and The Marks of Secret - Series Number 4
This is the 4th book in the Gregor The Underland Chronicles series. My granddaughter continually reminds me to check for the next volume of this particular book series as she loves the adventure. She began reading the series when she was 11. She is now 12 and is as much excited about the Gregor books as she was from the beginning. I've already been asked to check for the 5th book in the series, which I understand is arriving in early 2007.
5-0 out of 5 stars Suzanne Collins is a GENUIS!!!!!!
Gregor and the Marks of Secret is one of the best books I've ever read.The Underland Chronicles are SO amazing.Suzanne Collins is the best at world-building.I read Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods in two days, and it was over three-hundred pages long.These books are impossibel to put down.

5-0 out of 5 stars GO GREGOR
GREGOR AND THE MARKS OF SECRET was a lot deeper than all the others. Not better than THE PROPHECY OF BANE, but still definatelly worth your while. Can't wait 'till GREGOR AND THE CODE OF CLAW (last book) comes out. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this book! It's amazing!
I love this book. I have read this book in three different languages (german, english and french). It's a completley heartwarming story and not only for kids! This book has a lot of great quotes like:
5-0 out of 5 stars Innocent and true- he came from a star
_This is the sort of tale that a person writes when he steps back and takes an objective look at civilization. This was the point of view of the author, stranded as he was in the Sahara with a broken aeroplane and on the edge of life and death. It was there and then that he met the only person in his life that he was ever really able to talk to- the apparition of the Little Prince.
5-0 out of 5 stars Essential to the Heart
I read this book when I was in High School a couple of years ago

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great new addition to our book shelf!
As a mom of a pink princess obsessed 4yr. old, this book is right up her alley! The story is fun and well written. I love this Sassie character! The illustrations are bright and eye catching, such a fun and whimsical book that my daughter hasn't let out of her sight! (let alone, let her younger sister even touch!) We've even decided we're going to buy another copy to donate to her preschool so they can fall in love with it as well!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best children's book illustrations I have ever seen... BRAVO!!
I have been a fan of Dena's work for years. Sassafras's illustrations manage to capture the emotions of the spoiled pink poodle perfectly. The illustrations are colorful, whimsical, and utterly delightful. Some of the best children's book illustrations I have ever seen, and it is now my two children's absolutely favorite book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sassie is fabulous
I absolutely LOVED Sassafrass.It perfectly captures in a comedic way how success can change and warp a personality, and how when a person (or a dog) starts to believe her own publicity, she can lose track of who she really is.Staying true to yourself and keeping your head on straight in good times and in bad is a great message for children and adults.And this tale is told with such a light touch--that it's like eating a chocolate souffle!Brava Sassie!You are adorable! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply one of the best books out there
My now 17 year old daughter introduced this book to me when she was just six.She came home repeating to me as much of the text as she could recall from having heard the book at storytime at school.She was so enamored by the story (being a huge tub-lover herself) that I had to go to a bookstore & find the book for her.I've loved it since.Now I have two more toddlers who are loving the Woods' books every bit at much.We recently discovered Piggies, which we read (obviously) at bedtime.Sure, while the text doesn't always rhyme perfectly & things don't always add up (I was always taught piggies are your toes, not your fingers) my kids don't care about that. They love the illustrations and the words of this book & their others, and I do too!

5-0 out of 5 stars My kids LOVE this book!
While the illustrations are simply luscious, with extraordinary detail and humor, the text is simple enough that my 5-year-old "reader" can read it to her younger brother.They also love us to read it to them, and we pore over the illustrations to see what hidden treasures they can find.My children especially like the ending (they cheer!), when the young page thinks of the simple, common-sense solution that all of the grown-ups, with their ruses as elaborate as their clothes, could not.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great classic children's book
A simple story becomes fantastical and enthralling with the amazingillustrations that immediately captured by neice's attention and kept it.Fun and memorable. ... Read more

My kids love this book!They range in age from an 11 yr old girl to a 3 yr old boy and they all enjoy it! My son loves the story and the knights and adventure.And, he is learning something in the process.My older kids enjoy the story also but on a different level and it also reinforces what they have already learned!What a great concept!I can't wait for more to come out!We already own all 4!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Middle School kids
I have use this book in my middle school classroom.The kids enjoy it.Yes, it is silly but heck so are middle school kids!Since reading the book and discussing it, the kids have a much better understanding of what pi really is, instead of just saying about 3.14.

4-0 out of 5 stars Discovering PI in a mid evil kind of way.
Radius has to discover PI in order to save his father, Sir cumference from the evil curse of the fire breathing Dragon. I read this book to a fourth grade class and they really got a kick out of it.They wanted to learn pie along with Radius through his adventures to conquer the curse.This is a creative way to introduce a math lesson to children.There is even places to stop and let the kids try a couple problems.The activities include measuring and dividing.Teachers this is a must have. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Classic to cherish
I had this Babar book as a child and could not resist buying it for my daughter, and I am so happy that I did.This book is so incredible, the pictures and colors so vibrant and the text so incredibly addictive, that your child wil carry it with her forever.I know I have.I was stunned by how much of the dialogue and how many of the pictures I remembered.This book is a reasure that you and your children will share for years to come.Some people my comment about some of the themes, but as a child they went over my head, and as an adult, I recognized how tastefully done they are.Highest possible recommendation

5-0 out of 5 stars Lovely story
This is such an awesome story.I can remember reading it when I was a child.My three-year-old son can't get enough of this book.Other reviewers have expressed concern with the sad parts of the story (Babar's mother killed and the elephant king dying,) but they didn't bother my son a bit.We just talked about what was happening and he was okay.This is a classic!

5-0 out of 5 stars a classic tale to share with your children
I love Babar as much for the pictures as for the story.When I read it again to my daughter, I turned to the page where "Alas, that very day, the King of the elephants had eaten a bad mushroom" and thought wow, I remember that!The resurging memory of that illustration is so keen in my mind, it's as if twenty-plus years had just fallen away.And next comes my very favorite line, for its old-fashioned text and neatness of phrase:"It poisoned him and he became ill, so ill that he died.This was a great calamity."Which is not to say that the story of Babar dwells on sad things, because it doesn't.Whatever happens to Babar he deals with it with grace and moves on.Endlessly adaptable, this is an elephant who so charms the ladies that he woos and wins Celeste in just their brief drive home.The only sticking point for some parents who are encountering this book for the first time and therefore don't have their eyes all misting over with tender rememberances of their own childhood is that Babar is chosen to be the new king of the elephants because he is considered to have "learned so much living among men".If you are trying not to teach your children that humans are above and beyond all other animals, you may not want this subtle message.Overall, I think this book is wonderful and, at the end, when he and Celeste fly away in a hot air balloon to begin their honeymoon, it is clear that the story continues.This can be taken in the vein of allowing for endless opportunity of sequels but I prefer to think of it as the beginning of your child's opportunity to answer "what happens next" and regale you with their own series of stories about the adventures of Babar, the little elephant. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
I thought this book was great - it was really colorful. The overall feel reminded me of the book "Now I Know the Ten Commandments". I recommend it to anyone.
5-0 out of 5 stars Daughter loves it
My daughter loves this book and wants us to read it to her all the time before bed.

2-0 out of 5 stars Can't wait to read the ending....
My 4-year-old daughter received this book - it was her gift she opened on Christmas eve. We sat by the lighted Christmas tree and fire and she settled into my lap for a goodread. The illustrations ARE precious, as other reviewers have said. The story started off beautifully - very believable for a little girl. We got to the part about "the King" and I got intrigued as to how the writer would explain this - then the book ended. It just ENDED. No further explanation, no further story. Just a few more pages would have turned this almost good book into possibly a great book. I am sad that it didn't make it - I had high hopes. Perhaps you might want to check it out from the library first to see what I mean. :((I did give it 2 stars because of the sweet illustration and the beginnings of a good book.) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply Fabulous!
On a recent trip to the local bookstore, my daughter picked up this book, pulled me to a chair and instructed me to, "Read this please, Mama!"The cover art caught my attention, but the title... another retelling of the Princess and the Pea left me less enthusiastic.I began to read...
5-0 out of 5 stars Once upon a mattress
As a children's librarian I'm ever watchful and ever on the alert for the next Caldecott contender.I like picture books with a bit of oomph and pizzaz to them.I like picture books that try to do something a little different.I like picture books, in short, like Lauren Child's, "The Princess and the Pea".I picked this puppy up with the full expectation of getting something along the lines of yet another Charlie and Lola adventure.Instead I was stunned by the fabulous art I found.From its cover (cleverly designed to look like the cut-away with the chandelier is actually a giant pea) to its final pages where the book describes the artistic process, "Princess" has everything you're looking for in a great picture book, but with enough artsy-fartsy cache to lure even the stodgiest of adults.

1-0 out of 5 stars A Horrible, Boring Book
The whole idea of checking this book out from the library began when I realized that this story I was writing had a pretty similar plot as the story: a bunch of kids with these talents get called up to go to a special school, where they have their own rooms.
5-0 out of 5 stars WOW JENNY NIMMO
this story was great. It was jam packed with action I couldn't stop reading the book. It is a story of a boy whose family is made up of him, his mother, his nice grandma, and his grandma bone, who is always in his business. I suggest this book to anyone who lke stories that are full of adventure and have mystery

2-0 out of 5 stars The "Bad Apple" of the series
Now, before the "Castle if Mirrors", I was a big Charlie Bone fan, I could not wait for this book to come out.All of the other books had unique interesting plots.However by the time Nimmo got to this book, she lost her touch.For example, this book had way to much "Harry Potter" take offs, which you could easily find if youve read both books and paid even the slightest attention.Also so much of the information in this book was completely pointless and overloaded (unless she plans to use it for her later books.And what was really corny wasthe whole new thing about one of the characters whohas already been in the other books has just suddenly gained a power. Anways, readof you like, but I don't know if it will be worth it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great illustrations make this a real treat.
While unpacking our books after a recent move, I came across "Oobleck" and spent ten minutes or so to reread it for the first time in at least 20 years. While the storyline is fairly simple, Dr. Seuss' wonderful illustrations make this a fun book for readers of all ages. Buy it, read it to your kids (or anyone's kids!), and be sure to let them inspect each page to see all the great little details in the drawings. The facial expressions are particularly entertaining.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great story for making up voices...
Although "Bartholomew and the Oobleck" is different in style than the Dr Seuss books most people are familiar with, it is still a good story. Bartholomew is pageboy to the king, and apparently the smartest person in the kingdom. When the king orders his magicians make "something new" fall from the sky, with disasterous consequences, which threaten to bury the kingdom under an ocean of green sludge, only Bartholomew takes action.5-0 out of 5 stars A timeless classic for children and adults
Bartholomew and the Oobleck begins with the King of Did being irritated and bored with the weather. His page, Bartholmew, tries to enlighten the king with simple common sense. The king ignores him and turns to (literally) magical solutions for his current peeve. When the results turn disastrous, Barthlomew tries to warn his friends in the castle. No one listens to him, being more concerned with their own business and as a result, they all end up worse off. Then, when the king finally listens to him, a ray of hope appears amidst the crisis.

4-0 out of 5 stars Young Readers and THE WHIPPING BOY
THE WHIPPING BOY is a classic children's story, written at a level that second or third grade skilled readers can handle.It moves along quickly.Flieschman uses good word choices.It provides an excellent opportunity for young readers to apply text-to-self and inference skills.It deserves the Newbery Medal which it earned.

2-0 out of 5 stars The Whipping Boy
In this book Prince Brat is a boy who cannot write or read.Jemmy is the whipping boy who gets the whippings when Prince Brat is misbehaving.Jemmy, who is also called Jemmy of the streets, is given this name by the father of Prince Brat.Prince Brat's father also gives him clothes and plenty of food, and a good home.One day Jemmy plans to run away.When Prince Brat finds out he asks to join him.So then they ran away but end up being held for ransom.I think this book needs a little reality.It is perfect for younger children (like 3-5th grades.)I thought it was not very good because it did not make sense.It needed more details on the characters and the setting.It did not hold my attention and I think it could have been better, and that's why I rate it two stars.
