Review quote

"The text is brief and full of modern touches . . . Dialogue is snappy, with a liberal use of humor and wisecracks. The animationlike artwork is full of movement. . .There is a cinematic feel that will appeal to young readers . . .this updated classic should find a different, and more welcoming, reception from kids. --"School Library Journal""show more
