Young Reader Reaction: My daughter picked out this book at the library. She liked the story and really loved the ending.

Adult Reader Reaction: I enjoyed the book. It had a great moral to it. Sometimes we think someone is being rude or for some reason just does not like us, but in reality they have their own problems going on.

Pros: This book offers a good message about judging others written into a cute story.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow, at least. It is a cute story but not necessarily one you would need in your own library. Get it from the library and enjoy it. If I had a child who had just gotten glasses or was concerned about getting glasses, I might buy this book.
