My family and I LOVED this book because we couldn't stop laughing as we read it. Ereth is so crabby, but yet so funny that we wanted to
read longer than 30 minutes each night. I had to force myself to put the book down. The plot is riveting. Five stars for this one! Ereth deserves a block of salt!!!
(I agree it is funny colin)I am so tired! I was just commenting on peoples accounts! :^)well I like comedy and I should read it while I have nothing to do cause I'm sick :^) CameronI just started this book and i love it so far I would give it a 10 to-AlisonIt sounds intresting , where did you get the book from?

Comments (at least 3 sentences) This book is better than the movie, and that's hard to believe because the movie was so fun and colorful and enjoyable. The book includes more adventures than the movie could hold. There were some changes, most notably the color of the shoes. In the book, the shoes are silver. In the movie, they're red. We loved reading this book! We highly recommend it.​ ​
I agree i love the book the scare crow is my favrite person his smart and he did'nt even know it. I just saw the movie again today. Jaya (^;I loved reading that book last year it's a sad but fun and happy book great pick Mrs.Pardington, Ailson.that's the best book I ever read thanks for reading it to us last year.

Comments (at least 3 sentences) This "Battle of the Books" book was a delight to read. I like mysteries, so this book was already going to be one I liked since it is a mystery. I liked how the main character was a beetle (Marvin). The other main character, James, was a very kind human. Wouldn't it be great if he was a student at Beverly School? The fun part about this mystery was trying to figure out who the true art thief/thieves were. I was half right! :) This book also caused me to do some research on some artists from the Middle Ages. I was fascinated by the intricate drawings which were completed only in ink! What GREAT detail and effort they used. The only part I didn't like about this book was when the author had James "hurt himself" in the end. I thought that wasn't a good model for kids. I'm sure that a better ending could have been written.

Comments (at least 3 sentences)
My students recommended that I read this book because they knew that I loved popcorn! They found it in the library and I checked it out. I thought I knew everything about popcorn until I read this book. I can tell that Tomie de Paola did a lot of research before he wrote this nonfiction book. I am determined that I need to read more nonfiction books. There are so many interesting facts to be learned out there!

I couldn't wait to read this second book that followed Happenstance Found. I wanted some questions answered and this book delivered, althought I still have a few more questions. I was pleased and intrigued by the further adventures of Hap and Lord Umber. I can't wait to read the last book of this trilogy. I'm waiting on pins and needles.

I love fantasy so I really picked up on the fantasy in this book. The Borrowers are little people who live around humans but out-of-sight of humans. The "borrow" from humans what they can find to help them with their home. I rediscovered this book after the flood in our basement. It was good to pick it up again and reacquaint myself with the characters. This book is the first in a small series, similar to The Littles, but the Borrowers don't have tails. The most fun I had as I read this book was to think of how items around my house could benefit the Borrowers. If you are a fan of fantasy, I think you might like this book.

This is the final book of the trilogy. It's time for Hap to learn how to use his abilities. He learns how to manipulate the filaments. Hap uses all of the knowledge of the places he had been to fight off The Executioner. The question is: will he know how to fix Lord Umber's former world? This ending is SO action packed. There are events happening on top of each other! I'm glad the author included an epilogue at the end to let us know what happened to all of the characters after the story ends. If you've read book 1 and book 2, you MUST read book 3! :)
Do you think that the auther will make a part 4? < Ashley
