Read full description of the books:
I was surprised reading all the other reviews how low people rated this. I thought it was fantastic! Sure, the plot was a little predictable and some of the language simplistic, but it's a book for 3rd graders, for crying out loud! As such, I thought it was fantastic. Tan's worked very well within the vocabulary limitations, using well-constructed sentences to keep up the suspense despite the fact that I had some idea of what was going to happen. But, again, I'm an adult. I imagine that this would be a very enjoyable read for the second to fourth grade crowd. I tend not to get too excited about "reluctant reader" series (I actually despise the term "reluctant reader"), because good writing is sacrificed for oversimplified language. I don't think that's true in this case.
Ironically, I liked the illustrations less than the writing, since Tan is known and regarded more highly for his art (a la The Arrival). It may just be that the wood etchings were poorly transferred, though. That wouldn't surprise me at all.
