I received this book courtesy of Mrs. Roman for the purpose of a fair and honest review.
Overview: Susannah has a problem. Her math homework is unfinished, she has gotten an unwanted invitation to a slumber party at a creepy house, and both have been hidden away in her book bag. And the problems keep piling on. How much can one bag take? And can Susannah find out how to take care of her problems?
Story Telling: This is an early-reader chap-book. Probably around second grade, maybe. It depends on your reader.
Artwork: What illustrations exist are mostly in black and white.
Dislikes: Susannah’s family needs help. She doesn’t seem to be understood by either side.
Likes: Susannah did find some help for her problems.
Favorite Quote: I can’t really find one without spoiling the story. Not good for such a small book.
Conclusion: This one was pretty good, even if it did get a little more serious than I’d prefer. Enjoy it with your young reader.
