    I absolutely loved this book. My fifth graders also absolutely loved this book! I found this book to be a wonderful launch for many writing activities. Our favorite was when I gave each student a "Littmus Lozenge"(really a Jolly rancher candy) and they had to write in their journals about something that was sweet yet a little meloncholy. I was impressed with what I got back. It is amazing how introspective 10 yr. olds can be given the right motivation. This book is also great for sequencing and teaching about "voice" in
    writing. Our entire grade level has read this book. It reads very well outloud. Enjoy!
