I have been waiting to buy this new for ages as a gift, because my own Scholastic copy is a favourite for me to read as a parent. This is another of Henkes' brilliant takes on offbeat kids. Chester and his pal Wilson are two peas in a pod, both of a slightly nervous and careful disposition. Lily's boldness initially intimidates them, and I won't give any more away than that but I do think that a one-star review owing to bad customer service is quite unfair. Henkes' illustrations have witty foils to the text and his books are gentle in how they treat all kinds of spirited kids. This provides an antidote to the relentless jolliness and superficial positivity of so many children's books (with irritatingly fearless heroes/heroines), while ultimately having a positive message about the shock of the new.

I never got the book. How can I review it. I'm sure it's a good book. I even contacted the seller and told them that I never received the book and they have not replied back to me as of yet.
